How much do dental implants cost in Perth, West Australia?
The answer is, “it depends”. (Because no two people are the same) However, we’ve given you a few ball-park scenarios to give you a better idea about pricing.
Your teeth and bones are different from anyone else’s. And so are your dental implant requirements. That’s why the cost of your implants in Perth, Western Australia, or anywhere else, will be different from anyone else’s, and why we can’t give you an accurate quote over the Internet. However, we hope the following information may be helpful.

Include all the implant costs
When considering dental implants, it’s essential you don’t run at price comparison of the implants themselves. There are several costs involved in your implant procedure, along with the cost of your prosthetic device (e.g. in the case of one single missing teeth, an abutment and crown; where all teeth are missing, and implant supported bridge or implant supported overdenture)
Some individuals may need bone grafts as they no longer have adequate bone tissue to support dental implants. While not excessively expensive, they will add to your cost.
Adding up the costs: two common scenarios. (For example only, prices may vary.)
LISA: Single Implant, Abutment & Crown
36-year-old Lisa recently had one tooth knocked out while playing netball and wanted an immediate tooth replacement solution.
Lisa was in good health and had ample jawbone tissue to support her implant.
After her free initial consultation and x-rays, Lisa had a single implant placed. Later, an abutment and crown were attached. An implant, abutment & crown is priced from $3,750.
Lisa’s out-of-pocket expenses: $2,464 (Total cost: $3,750)
Lisa had been with HBF for six years and was, therefore, able to claim $878 for her tooth implant, and $408 for her crown (claiming $1,286), bringing her out-of-pocket expenses down to $2,464.
Lisa now has a functional replacement tooth that looks and feels just like her original tooth.
Lisa’s choice of a dental implant and crown over options, such as a partial denture or fixed bridge was ideal, and holds many advantages: implants have a high success rate, are long-lasting, and are more natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing.
65-year-old David had lost all his upper teeth and wanted a permanent solution.
David had been wearing conventional removable upper dentures for ten years, but found them bulky and uncomfortable, making eating and socialising difficult.
David had the All-on-Four procedure, giving him a (fixed) full arch support in his upper jaw, which is priced from $30,000.
David’s out-of-pocket expenses: $28,200. (Total cost $30,000)
David had been with HBF for 11 years and was able to receive the full annual limit of $1,800 for major dental, bringing his out-of-pocket expenses down to $28,200.
Although the cost of David’s All-on-4 was significantly higher than his dentures, he no longer requires ongoing denture relines, or new dentures made every five years.
David can now eat a greater range of foods which has improved his nutritional intake, and his teeth look just like his natural teeth did years before.
The initial cost of dental implants are often similar to a tooth-supported fixed bridge, but cost more than the initial cost of removable dentures. But when you consider the ongoing maintenance of both procedures, along with the long-term value of implants, it’s easy to see the benefits of tooth implants.
If maintained appropriately, dental implants can last for a significant time while carrying a low risk of complications. Even with continued implant maintenance and repairs, the long term cost of dental implants can still be significantly less than alternative tooth replacement options.

What affects the cost of my dental implant?
Not all dental implant treatments are the same, and there are many factors that affect the cost of dental implants. Being aware of these factors should help put the cost of your implant in perspective.
The type of dental implant used
The equipment and facilities used to perform the procedure
The labour costs
The skill of the dental technician in fabricating the dental implant prosthesis
The dental laboratory and materials used to fabricate the dental implant prosthesis
