What Do Dental Implants Cost?

by | Jan 17, 2018 | Dental Implants | 4 comments

The cost of dental implants is a hot topic, but in fact, this option may be more affordable than many other tooth replacement alternatives.

When done correctly a dental implant should last a lifetime, and can be seen as an investment, compared to alternatives such as dentures and bridges, which do not last as long.

What influences the cost of dental implants?

Of course, it’s not really possible to get an accurate estimate of the cost until you’ve seen your dentist and had your mouth evaluated. This is because the implants and treatment process are customised for you.

Your particular circumstances will determine the number of appointments you need, as well as how complex the procedure will be.

Your geographical location and your dentist’s fees will also contribute to the overall cost of your dental implants. Dental implant procedures in Queensland and the Gold Coast are generally priced cheaper than those in Sydney and Melbourne.

What Should Your Quotation Include?

Your quote will depend on whether your dental implants are needed to provide support for just one tooth, or for multiple teeth. In the event that you have a damaged tooth or need a tooth extraction, your quote may be a little higher. Book a consultation with your dentist to determine what’s required for your case.

The price you are quoted should include the titanium fixture that will be screwed into your jaw, as well as the porcelain crown.

One dental implant can be used to restore one to two teeth, and two implants can restore up to four missing teeth.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost In Australia?

While costs do vary, you can expect to pay in the region of $5000 – $5500 for a single dental implant and a simple procedure. If your procedure is more complex, this cost could increase to $7500 for a single implant. The ‘All-on-4’ implant procedure usually costs between $20 000 and $30 000.

Of course if there are complications, these costs may increase. If your jawbone is too weak or too shallow you may need a bone graft to be performed. You can get a consultation at your local clinic to assess your treatment requirements. In the event that your body rejects the implant, you may need a larger dental implant and subsequent procedures.

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a superior tooth replacement solution because they are longer lasting than dentures and bridges. They also prevent bone loss that usually accompanies lost teeth.

Thanks to modern technology dental implants look very natural and will give you a confident smile. The procedure is largely pain-free. Dental implants are suitable for use for different ages and wearing them allows you to eat hard foods, which other teeth replacement options do not.

Dental implants are usually more comfortable than bridges and dentures because they are fixed, and many patients report a much higher quality of life once they have had implants fitted.

How Do You Know If You Are A Candidate For Dental Implants?

If you are a non-smoker, do not have periodontal disease and have a fair amount of bone tissue, your dentist may recommend dental implants.

The best way to get an accurate cost for your dental implants is to book a consultation at our dental clinic. Call us today: (02) 9051 0600 .

    I have a long history of bad teeth and actually they’re
    a constant embarrassment ’til now. I know the work I need is gonna be extensive. I had no idea what and how it’s gonna be but now I think an implant might just be what I need. Thanks to you.
    I am not excited about the price but I seriously want to have teeth. Today I’m considering to invest money in my mouth so I can eat and feel better for the next few years. Can’t wait to see my dentist and see what he has to say.

    Having had a couple of dental implants done, I’ve always wondered why they’re so expensive. I know they’re the best permanent treatment to replace damaged or missing teeth
    and I don’t begrudge the dental providers or the implant material manufacturers from making a profit. But with multiple thousands of dollars per tooth it certainly appears excessive.
    I was fortunate to afford them but it’s just a shame that implants are cost prohibitive for many people who need them the most.
