What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have revolutionised the replacement of missing teeth and can improve oral health. Depending on your personal needs, this dental implant procedure could be for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth.
As you may know, each of our natural teeth comprises a crown (the top part you use to bite with) and a root (that connects the tooth to inside your jaw bone). Dental implants replicate these natural parts to give you the best results. Implants are made up of a crown (the top part you will use to eat with), an implant fixture (a small titanium screw placed in your jaw), and an abutment (that connects the two parts). Dental implants are the preferred long-term treatment option to replace your missing tooth or missing teeth, as it offers the most natural-looking, feeling, and functioning result (single tooth dental implant is pictured).

Do I need Dental Implants?
Dental implants could be the preferred treatment option if you are experiencing any of the following:
I have lost one or more of my original teeth.
I suffer from advanced gum disease that is affecting my dental health.
I find wearing my dentures uncomfortable.
My facial appearance has started to change.
I can’t eat what I want anymore – forget steak or chewy foods.
My teeth have started to move around and my bite doesn’t line up.
My missing teeth affect how I talk and sound.
I’m unhappy with my smile, and I feel self-conscious.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
There are many advantages to tooth implants, including:
Tooth implants offer the most natural-looking, feeling, and functioning teeth result.
Implants feel very similar to your natural teeth, with similar aesthetics to natural-looking teeth that allow you to eat all types of foods.
Tooth implants are fixed in your mouth which removes the mobility and discomfort that can occur with removable options.
Tooth Implants prevent adjacent teeth from moving, creating alignment problems.
They stimulate and preserve the remaining bone, unlike removable dentures which can cause bone loss.
The positive psychological impact with the feeling of being truly rehabilitated – no more missing teeth – so you can show off your smile and build up your self-esteem.

Our Dental Implants Process
Obtaining all the information we need
At your missing teeth consultation appointment, we will review your medical history. You will undergo an oral examination, and your dentist will discuss all the suitable teeth replacement options. Impressions, X-rays, scans and photos will likely be taken, and a comprehensive treatment plan will be organised for you. The proposed treatment will be discussed in detail with you to ensure you fully understand the risks and treatment involved and the dental implant costs.
Our Aria Treatment Coordinators are then available to answer any dental implant questions, discuss your sedation ‘sleep dentistry’ choices, and share financial options. They will be your main point of contact when accepting your treatment plan and booking your surgical appointment once you are ready to proceed.
The Dental Implant Placement
Once you have accepted your treatment, completed your medical consent forms and paid your deposit, you will receive a surgical date with our specialist Prosthodontist. This is where one or more of your dental implant fixtures will be surgically placed under local anaesthetic. You may have alternatively decided to choose a sedation/sleep dentistry option.
This is the surgical phase of dental implant Perth therapy. The implant fixture will be placed into your jawbone. This stage may also include the removal of teeth, bone grafting, or both if required to be completed. A temporary tooth may also be placed during the healing period.
Once the dental implant has been placed, we will need to check to see that it is healing correctly. A post-operative appointment will be made for you 12 weeks after the surgical procedure. The actual number of post-implant assessment appointments will depend on the complexity of your procedure and whether you have any personal risk factors that could compromise the healing of the implant.
The second stage of dental implant surgery (if required)
Depending on the type of your treatment (single tooth, full arch etc.) and how the implant has been placed, you may need additional surgical visits and undergo the associated healing periods.
A silicone or digital impression of the implant site in your mouth will be taken to design and fabricate your crown. The correct colour shade will be assessed, and usually, a ‘try-in’ appointment is required so we can ensure the perfect fit, shape, and natural colour match of the implant crown.
If you have been referred to Aria Dental, it is at this stage that you will return to your local dentist to complete your treatment. Otherwise, your new dental implant crown placement will be scheduled at Aria Dental and conducted by one of our highly skilled restorative dentists.
Dental hygiene, regular maintenance and assessment are critical to the long-term success of your implant. A review of the dental implants and healing of the gums is essential to ensure no minor issues affect its long-term longevity. We recommend regular initial check-ups and always following the directions of your dentist or oral health therapist. Dental implants are an investment and you need to look after your dental implants!
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost Perth?
Depending on your dentist’s required treatment and skill,the final cost of dental implants in Perth will range fromapproximately $3,750 to $7,000 for a single implant.
Within the Australian dental industry, the cost of dental implants differs accordingly. We’ve put together the following information as an approximate guide on the cost of dental implants.
The cost of basic All on 4 dental implants (acrylic bridge supported by just four dental implants) starts at approximately $25,000. The price will depend on your needs, though and may be higher.
Quoting on treatment for dental implants in Perth should be done at a proper dental implant consultation to allow for an accurate and thorough clinical assessment specific to you.
Patients looking for the cheapest options may consider overseas treatment, but there are associated risks, and they should understand that an invasive procedure carries risks.
The cost of dental implants in Perth will differ from person to person, which is why at Aria, we don’t offer definitive quotes for dental implants over the phone or online.

Factoring in the cost of Dental Implants in Perth
When considering implants, it’s essential that you factor in all of the potential costs that may be involved for you.
The Dental Implants
The implant comprises three parts to replace missing teeth: the implanted fixture, the abutment, and the crown, used to replace missing teeth. These can often be quoted in two stages – the dental implant fixture/s, then the abutment and the crown – so make sure you are accounting for both. It’s essential to consider the grade of the crown, and some dentists offer more generic and low-quality plastic crowns. On the other hand, you may prefer high-quality, aesthetically designed and better-fitting ceramic crowns, which we custom-make at Aria’s Dental Implant Perth Clinic.
We have state-of-the-art technology which makes the surgical process smoother and easier for the patient, a service which isn’t available in every clinic. The skill level and experience of your surgeon, assisting dentist, dental assistant or dental nurse contribute to your final result. Are you considering having implant surgery in a foreign country open to different levels of hygiene or safe in Australia with our very high levels of monitored surgical sterilisation? Make sure you fully understand the risks and costs involved in implants should things go wrong.
Are you getting a removable denture clipped on and off or a fixed implant solution? If you have been missing teeth for a period of time, do you need a bone graft?
If you still have some ‘old’ teeth that need to be removed, have you accounted for their removal? Are you just having a local anaesthetic, or would you prefer a higher level of sedation? Are you happy having a regular dentist perform your dental implant surgery, or would prefer to have a fully qualified dental specialist or a Prosthodontist complete your oral surgery? Does your regular dentist have the experience to manage potential complications should problems occur?
Health Funds Insurance Rebates
Dental implant costs are important, but if you have significant dental coverage with a health fund, you may get a reasonable amount of money back for your dental implant procedure; however, it won’t cover everything.
The amount of coverage depends on your health fund’s level of coverage and how many years you’ve been with the health fund. For an accurate rebate figure, you‘ll need an initial consultation with one of our implant dentists, who will produce an itemised treatment plan for you.
You can then check this plan with your health funds representative, or we can give you a rebate summary via our HICAPS machine to determine how much you will be refunded.
Future Dental Care
Aria Dental is a specialised clinic for dental implants in Perth. We provide you with a detailed plan and all the information about your procedure. After your implants have been placed, there is a level of post-treatment dental care and maintenance that will occur.

The Aria Dental team will be with you every step when caring for you and building your self-esteem.

We don’t offer treatment plans or quote online without physically seeing the patient – which is why we offer our patients a complimentary dental implant consultation.
Complimentary Dental Implant Consultations

Our team will present your treatment options applicable to your oral requirements. They will provide recommendations based on ‘the best outcome’ that meets your personal needs. With all this information, you will decide on your course of treatment.
Dental Treatment Payment Options
We always recommend taking time to investigate your financial options before proceeding with your treatment plan. Discuss your treatment with your health fund, family, and trusted financial adviser.
There are several ways to fund major dental treatments. It is common for patients to investigate different financial options and then use a combination of them. Accessing personal savings, a personal loan, withdrawing some of their (or their partner’s) superannuation and ‘buy now, pay later zero interest financing’. These have pros and cons and should be considered with care.
Once you are ready to go ahead, and have accepted your treatment plan for dental implants, our Treatment Coordinators will guide you through your dental implant treatment journey, including paying for your treatment and key payment dates. Whether it is self-funded or third-party financed, we require you to settle your account in a timely manner, per our payment terms.

Dental Implant Treatment FAQs
We’ve put together some of the most common questions to help you make an informed decision.
What are the best dental implants?
Also known as tooth implants, dental implants are artificial tooth replacements for a missing tooth. Implants are made of a titanium alloy, and the titanium screw is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to support the replacement tooth or teeth.
There are several implant treatments to replace missing teeth, such as a single tooth, multiple teeth, four implants or All on 4, implant support dentures (or overdentures) and full arch rehabilitation.
Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?
Any adult missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or tooth decay can have implants. Patients also need healthy gum tissue, free of disease. Appropriate jaw bone mass is required to support the implant fixture. If you have been missing teeth for a time, the bone may have resorbed, requiring bone grafting before the procedure.
Some medical conditions, such as diabetes and osteoporosis, or lifestyle choices, such as smoking, may need to be addressed before dental implant treatment.
You need to be assessed by a dedicated implant dentist to determine your eligibility at our Aria Perth dental implant centre. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.
Are all implant dentists the same?
Not all dentists are trained in dental implants in Perth dentistry. It is important to understand that there is significant variation in the cost and quality of your treatment. The factors that influence the quality and outcome of your dental implant treatment include the following:
formal qualifications, experience and expertise of the dental surgeon
type of implant used; not all implants are the same
equipment and facilities used to perform the procedure
the skill of the dental technician when fabricating the crown/bridge/prosthesis
dental laboratory and materials used to manufacture the crown/bridge/prosthesis
When choosing where to have your treatment, please consider every detail carefully.
There should be little or no compromise regarding the materials’ quality, and you should be proud to say, ‘you’re my implant dentist’.
Are dental implants expensive?
“Dental implants cost Perth” or “cheapest dental implants in Perth” is a frequently searched term online, and one patients always focus on. The initial cost of having a dental implant procedure is greater than that of a denture or a tooth-supported fixed bridge. If maintained adequately however, implants can last a lifetime, making the long-term cost affordable.
When considering costs, it is also essential to consider the ‘biological cost’ of dental treatment; that is, the biological impact it has on the tooth and the likelihood of needing future treatment. The biological cost of having a denture or a tooth-supported bridge is far greater than that of an implant, and when this is considered, the dental implant is much more cost-effective.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
As with any other routine oral treatment, we place your implants under local anaesthetic at our specialist Perth Dental Implant Centre.
If required, we also provide additional sedation options to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. As with any surgery, you may be given analgesics and medications to ensure your comfort during the healing phase.
The skill, experience and care of the clinical team will also determine your pain. It’s advisable to do your own research, reading the best dental implant reviews to find out what other patients are saying. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.
How long will dental implants last?
Once your implant/s have successfully fused to the bone and are functional, they should last for 10 years, with proper dental hygiene and if cared for properly. Many implants have now been in place for more than 40 years.
If you selected your treatment based on dental implant costs alone, the quality of your crown might need to be replaced or updated as it ages.
How do I take care of my dental implants?
The dental hygiene of your dental implants needs to be a priority, and adequately cleaned and maintained, just like your other teeth. Learn how here!
Dental Implants don’t get cavities, but brushing and flossing around your dental implants is extremely important.
Along with your daily at-home care, it is essential to have regular visits to your implant dentist, who will be able to ensure a long life for your dental implants.
What are the complications that can occur with dental implants?
Implants are safe and effective and have a very high success rate. However, as with all surgical or invasive procedures, there are risks involved when placing dental implants. Before proceeding, you should seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner, like a specialist Prosthodontist registered with the Australian Dental Association.
These may include:
Infection at the implant site.
Injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as neighbouring teeth or blood vessels.
Nerve damage can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your teeth, gums, lips or chin.
Sinus problems can occur when dental implants are placed in the upper jaw and protrude into one of your sinus cavities.
Several risk factors may also increase the risk of implant failure, such as smoking and periodontal disease. It is essential to discuss any general medical conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis before commencing dental implant treatment. Ensuring you see an experienced and qualified dental professional will minimise complications and ensure you have the best dental implants.
Optimal home care and professional maintenance will also reduce the risk of any future complications or infection, so your dental implants can last you a lifetime.
What happens if I don’t replace my missing teeth?
When you’ve been living without your natural teeth for some time, there have been no tooth roots to stimulate the bone. This results in your jaw bone weakening and shrinking which can affect the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged. Placing dental implants can significantly reduce this process, helping to maintain the natural bone structure and support your facial features. Before choosing whether or not to proceed, you should seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Why are dental implants better than dentures?
Dentures are often ill-fitting and uncomfortable to wear, making it difficult to speak clearly and eat a wide variety of foods. Many conventional denture wearers have a restricted nutritional intake – even when dining alone – as they find it difficult to chew their food. This restricted nutritional intake can have a detrimental effect on their health and emotional well-being. With dental implants, your new replacement teeth are far more stable, allowing you to function as you would with regular teeth.
Additionally, as dentures sit on top of the gums and are not anchored to the jaw bone, they don’t stimulate the bone, resulting in increased jaw bone loss. Conversely, dental implants keep the bone stimulated, healthy and strong.
A dental implant journey can take around three to six months or up to 12 months for full arch treatments – but all timeframes depend on each patient’s individual circumstances.
What is the recovery time for dental implants?
Each individual’s dental treatment and circumstances are unique to them. However, as a guide, depending on the type of surgical procedure/s, you can estimate that the recovery periods will take anywhere between five to 20 days, depending on each patient’s circumstances.
Are there alternative options to dental implants?
If implants are not an option for you, your implant dentist or our Dental Specialist will advise alternative options. Alternatives to implants include a tooth-supported fixed bridge, partial dentures, complete dentures, or a resin-bonded bridge.
It is important to speak to your health practitioner about your suitability to proceed with any surgical or invasive procedure. Before proceeding, you should seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner, like a specialist Prosthodontist.
