How much does a dental implant cost?
The procedure can involve a significant investment, with surgical fees ranging from $2,000 and up for a single tooth replacement.
When you consider the implant crown being added then the tooth implant cost is about the same as a conventional “3-tooth bridge” which is between $4500 to $6000.
Multiple implants costs a bit cheaper (per implant) based on how we design to replace your teeth.
However, the cost of non-treatment can be considerably more expensive.
Continual bone loss occurs from the wearing of full dentures (plates) and partials.
This progressive loss of bone can eventually cause nerve exposure, jaw fracture and a complete inability to function with regular dentures.
Correction at this point may be very expensive and can involve extensive bone grafts, which may require hospitalization and an extended recovery period.
Placing implants before the bone loss becomes severe not only saves money in the long run, but also slows the bone loss process, increasing the likelihood of long-term success.
Tooth Implant Cost in Sydney depends on 3 Main Factors
The procedure can involve a significant investment,
with surgical fees ranging from $2,000 & up
for a single tooth replacement.
1. The number of dental implants being done
- For example if you have 3 teeth missing next to each other then we can place 2 dental implants and have 3 teeth bridge on top.
- This in turn reduces the dental implant cost.
2. Is there enough bone?
- If there is not enough bone to place the implant then we need to place some more bone.
- This requires additional expertise and also increases the cost of dental implants.
3. The location of the surgery
- Dental implant cost more in the front then at the back.
- This is because the front more often than not requires bone and gum augmentation and also requires a high aesthetic demand (meaning it has to look amazing).
Compare & Contrast
Which one looks more real?
Is there anything such as cheap dental implants?
Like anything, there is always a cheap version of it.
The question you have to ask is why is it cheap?
Implant Dentistry requires sophisticated skill and high level training.
There has been many a times that we have seen patients that have had cheap dental implants and there has been major infections, loss of implants, breakage of implants, implants damaging the nerves, implants damaging other teeth etc.
Overall the dental implant cost increases if you have to do it multiple times.
If you would like to see examples of this please come and visit us and we will show you all the collection we have of photos and xrays.
Cheap dental implants also exist in the form of the type of implant used, the type of connector being used and the quality of crown that has been placed on the implant.
Does insurance pay towards the tooth implant cost?
Yes and no.
Sorry to be so vague, but some carriers pay for them, some don’t, and some pay a portion of the dental implant cost.
Most dental plans do provide a part of the dental implant treatment.
Our staff will work hard to see that you get the best possible benefit from your insurance.
