The cost of dental implants is probably one of the biggest factors that deter prospective patients from ever seeing a dentist in Sydney about the treatment. The many unknowns surrounding implant prices and the fees of adjunctive services may be enough to prevent someone from ever inquiring about the treatment.
One of the biggest reasons why it’s difficult to provide a fixed fee on dental implants is because numerous factors come into play. Here are some of the most important things to keep in mind when you’re deciding whether you can afford dental implants:
Today’s dental implants outlast and outperform every other type of dental restoration. So even if you’re paying $2000 for an implant but a bridge might cost less, you’re theoretically saving money because the implant can last the rest of your life. When you consider that implants offer the best return on investment, the price is one you can’t afford to pass up.
The price of implants isn’t fixed on a per-tooth ratio. We can actually replace several teeth at a time with fewer implants, since they work in pairs to support more intense amounts of biting pressure.
For instance, it’s more cost effective to use a pair of implants to support a porcelain dental bridge than it would be to install 3-4 implants in a row, each with an individual crown.
Are you getting an individual implant with a crown? Perhaps you’re using a set of implants for an All-Teeth-on-4 or All-on-6 full-arch treatment?
The unique restoration that’s topping off your implants plus the number of implants used will play a crucial factor in the overall treatment costs. It’s an individualised process.
Implants must be set into healthy, stable bone tissues. If you’ve suffered from bone loss or gum recession, additional therapy may be required to ensure the installation site is healthy enough for implants. Not everyone requires a graft, but it shouldn’t be ruled out until you’ve spoken with an experience implant dentist in Sydney.
Some people prefer to add on varying levels of dental sedation during their procedure. Depending on the one you select, this can influence the final cost of your overall implant treatment process.
