Implants - Central Coast
Smile, happy looks good on you
Excellent Workmanship, Flawless Results
At Dental at Lake Haven we welcome Dr Nick Kulkarni from Sydney once a month, he has extensive experience with implants and is renowned for his quality workmanship.
At our Central Coast dental practice, we are able to provide dental implants to help you achieve the best possible smile in the long term. Essentially, an implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jaw to keep a bridge or replacement tooth in place. If you have lost teeth due to injury or an illness, implants can often serve as an excellent means to replace them in a way that is seamless and durable.
In order to be a good candidate for a dental implant, it’s important to maintain good oral and dental health. Additionally, an adequate level of bone in the jaw is required to support the implant. Otherwise, alternative tooth replacement methods may be required.
If you’ve suffered tooth loss, dental implants can drastically improve the quality of your everyday life. They don’t require messy adhesives and don’t need to be taken out to be cleaned as dentures do.

Our Central Coast dental team is able to fit the following kinds of implants to accommodate the unique needs of patients:
This method entails a screw, cylinder or blade being surgically inserted into the jawbone. These are used to support one or multiple prosthetic teeth. By far the most common type of implant, endosteal is typically selected by patients who do not wish to opt for a bridge or removable dentures.
If you are unable to wear conventional dentures, or have minimal jawbone height, a subperiosteal implant can serve as a good alternative. These implants rest on top of the jaw and make use of a metal framework which protrudes through the gum in order to hold the artificial tooth in place.
