We aim to be as competitive as possible when it comes to price for dental implants and implant-related treatment solutions. There are several things to consider when it comes to implant pricing:
1. The cost of implants and associated componentries vary significantly between brands (much like cars, bikes, electronics etc...) and cost typically reflects the technology and quality of the products. Thus there is no "standard price" when it comes to dental implants and often lower prices means a lower quality implant. We aim to provide top quality implant products for all our customers with all components having their respective manufacturer's warranties. Most high-end implant brands are made in European countries such as Switzerland and Sweden, while others could be made in the USA, middle-east or Asia.
2. The complexity of treatment also dictates cost. Implant surgery can be simple or very complex depending on the location and purpose of use. Implants can be singular or multiple depending on the number of teeth that need to be replaced and cost will increase respectively. Additional procedures such as bone-grafting or sinus-lifting can also add significantly to the total cost.
3. Maintenance costs is often forgotten when planning for dental implants. The bigger the initial investment, the higher the maintenance cost (much like an expensive car). Complex implant treatment may deliver excellent results but more effort will be needed to maintain those results in the long run and this should be considered during the planning stage.
A typical example of a single implant without any grafting procedures would be as followed:
- Consultation + 3D x-ray (off-site usually) = $200
- Implant surgery = $1,600
- Implant crown = $2,200
Total = $4,000 approximately
(please be aware that this entire procedure usually takes 3-6 months hence payment will be spread over this period)
Of course health insurance rebates will apply (limits vary between health funds and policies) on these procedures and discounts will apply on multiple implants but this will be best discussed with the clinician as part of the initial consultation. We are affiliated with all health insurance companies and are preferred providers for BUPA, Medibank Private, HCF, NIB, Australian Unity, and CBHS (locations will vary depending on the health fund). All implant items are under the "major dental" category so please review your policy prior to commencing implant treatment (rebates typically range between $800-1600 per year). Payment plans can be offered depending on the case and can be discussed with during the initial consultation visit.
