What are Dental Implants?

 

Dental Implants Perth have revolutionised the replacement of teeth. Depending on your personal needs, this procedure could be for a single tooth, multiple teeth or all of your teeth.

As you may know, each of our natural teeth are made up of a crown (the top part you use to eat) and a root (that connects the tooth to inside your jaw). A dental implant replicates these natural parts in order to give you the best results. A dental implant is made up of a crown (the top part you will use to eat with) and an implant fixture (a small titanium screw placed in your jaw) and an abutment (that connects the two parts together). This combination, the dental implant, is the preferred long-term treatment option to replace your missing teeth, as it offers the most natural looking, feeling and functioning result.

Do I need Dental Implants?

Here are some questions to consider when determining if you need Dental Implants.

  • I have lost one or a number of my original teeth
  • I suffer from advanced gum disease that is affecting my oral 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 effect how I talk and sound
  • I’m unhappy with my smile and I feel self conscious

Cost of Dental Implants in Australia

 

Every patient has different requirements, so dental implant costs do differ accordingly. However, we’ve put together the following information as an approximate guide on the cost of dental implants.

Depending on the quality, the final cost of dental implants in Australia range from approximately $3,500 to $6,000. All on Four costs in Australia start approximately around $15,000, but may be much more. Quoting on a dental implant treatment plan should be done at a dental implant appointment only, to allow for an accurate clinical assessment specific to you. That’s why the dental implants cost in Australia – or Perth – will differ person to person and why we don’t give dental implant quotes over the phone or online. However, we hope our 2020 dental implant pricing guide below is helpful. We encourage you to learn more about Aria Dental and how a dental specialist Prosthodontist can help guide you through your implant journey.

What to consider when reviewing the Cost of Dental Implants

 

When considering dental implants, it’s essential that you factor in all of the potential costs that you may be involved.

The Dental Implant

The dental implant itself is made up of three parts, the implanted fixture, the abutment and the crown. These can often be quoted in two stages, the implant fixture, then the abutment & the crown – make sure you are accounting for both. It’s important to consider the grade of the crown. Some dentists offer more generic and low quality crowns, but you may prefer a high quality, aesthetically designed and better fitting crown, which is what we use at Aria Dental.

The Location

Are you having dental 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 should things go wrong.

The Procedure

Are you getting a removable denture that is clipped on and off the dental implant or getting a fixed dental 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 to have a higher level of sedation? Are you happy having a general dentist perform your treatment, or do you want a fully qualified and dental implant experienced specialist Prosthodontist to complete your oral surgery? Does your regular dentist have the experience to manage potential complications should problems occur?

Health insurance rebates

If you have major dental cover with a health insurance fund, you may get a reasonable amount of money back for your dental implant procedure; however, it won’t cover everything. The amount of cover depends on your health insurance fund, level of cover and how many years you’ve been with the fund. For an accurate rebate figure, you ‘ll need to have had an initial consultation at Aria Dental and itemised treatment plan provided for you. You can then check this treatment plan with your health insurance provider or we can give you a rebate summary via our HICAPS machine to find out approximately how much you will be refunded.

Future Care

At Aria Dental, we provide you a detailed treatment plan and provide you with all the information about your procedure. After your dental implant have been placed, there is a level of post-treatment care and maintenance that will occur. The dental implant surgery is just the first step in a long relationship with your dental provider. The Aria Dental team will be there with you every step of the way.

How much do Dental Implants Cost at Aria Dental?

The cost of Dental Implants Perth at our Aria Dental clinic start from $4,500 for a single tooth fixed implant. However, how much dental implant/s will cost you will depend on a variety of issues, as no two people are the same.

To give you an indication of pricing, here are a few ball-park costs. These costs are before health insurance rebates, and payment plans are available for some, to make the procedure more financially manageable.

Everyone’s mouth is a bit different. Everyone’s needs are a bit different. Everyone’s cost is a bit different.

Treatment Payment Options

 

We recommend taking time to investigate your financial options before proceeding with your dental implant treatment plan. Discuss your treatment with your Health Fund, your family and/or your trusted financial adviser.

When accepting your treatment plan, our Dental Implant Treatment Coordinator will guide you through your treatment journey, including paying for your treatment and key payment dates. Whether it is self-funded or third-party financed, we do require you to settle your account in a timely manner, in accordance with our payment terms.

  • 50% – Deposit to secure your surgery appointment
  • 50% – Due on or before the day of surgery, prior to treatment

 

Other – as advised during your dental implant consult appointment, should you require bone grafting or other additional treatment during surgery, you will be invoiced these costs post treatment with the expectation that it be settled within 2 business days.

Dental implant tourism: Bali & Thailand Implants

It’s important understanding the facts and the ADA’s (Australian Dental Association) stance around overseas dental clinics.

Where you choose to have your dental implant procedure is up to you. Although wherever you choose, we strongly encourage you to do your research, thoroughly, and ensure you’re fully aware of all the risks and ongoing requirements. Because dental implant placement is only the first of many steps. And cultivating a trusting, ongoing relationship with an experienced and highly qualified practitioner to care for you for years to come is imperative.

That’s why we also invite you to book a complimentary appointment with Dr Zaninovich before you make any decisions. He can assess your situation, offer valuable advice, and you also may find that our prices aren’t nearly as high as you thought.

Dental Implants FAQs

We’ve put together some of the most common dental implant FAQs to help you make an informed decision.

What are dental implants?

Also known as tooth implants, dental implants are a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. Dental implants are made of a titanium alloy and are surgically inserted into the jawbone to support the replacement tooth or teeth.

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?

Most adults can have dental implants providing their jaw has finished growing, and they are in good health to undergo a surgical procedure. Anyone who is missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or tooth decay may be a candidate for dental implants. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, however. If you have been missing your teeth for many years and the bone has resorbed, you may require bone grafting or augmentation before the dental implant procedure. The best candidates have healthy gum tissue free of periodontal disease. There are some medical conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis, or lifestyle choices such as smoking, that may need to be addressed before implant treatment.

Do all dentists provide implant dentistry?

Not all dentists are trained in implant dentistry. It is important to understand that there is significant variation in not only the cost but the quality of your dental implant treatment. The factors that influence the quality and outcome of your dental implant treatment include the:

  • formal qualifications, experience and expertise of the dental surgeon
  • type of dental implant used; not all implants are the same
  • equipment and facilities used to perform the procedure
  • skill of the dental technician when fabricating the dental implant prosthesis
  • dental laboratory and materials used to fabricate the dental implant prosthesis

When choosing where to have your dental implant treatment, please consider every detail carefully. There should be very little or no compromise in terms of the quality of the materials used and you should be proud to say ‘your my implant dentist’.

Are dental implants expensive?

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 important 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 taken into consideration, the dental implant is much more cost-effective.

Is dental implant surgery painful?

As with any other routine dental treatment, we place dental implants under local anaesthetic. 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.

How long will dental implants last?

Once a dental implant has successfully fused to the bone and is functional, it should last many years, if cared for properly. Many implants have now been in place for more than 40 years.

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Dental implants need to be adequately cleaned and maintained just like your natural teeth. Although they are not subject to dental cavities, if not properly cared for, they can develop gum inflammation and even infection and bone loss. Brushing and flossing around your dental implants is extremely important. In addition to daily home care, it is important to maintain regular visits to your dentist who will be able to review and ensure the surrounding gums and bone remain healthy.

What are the complications that can occur with dental implants?

Dental implants are safe and effective and have a very high success rate. However, as with all dental treatments, there are risks involved when placing dental implants. These may include:

  • Infection at the implant site
  • Injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels
  • Nerve damage, which can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your natural teeth, gums, lips or chin
  • Sinus problems, when dental implants placed in the upper jaw protrude into one of your sinus cavities

There are also several risk factors that may increase the risk of implant failure such as smoking and periodontal disease. It is important to discuss any general medical conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis with your dental surgeon before commencing dental implant treatment.

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 jawbone weakening and shrinking, and 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.

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 eating 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 if you would with normal teeth.

Additionally, as dentures sit on top of the gums and are not anchored to the jawbone, they don’t stimulate the bone, resulting in increased bone loss. Conversely, dental implants keep the bone stimulated, healthy and strong. Read more about the benefits of implants here.

What affects the cost of dental implants in Perth?

Not all dental implant treatments are the same, and there are many factors that affect the cost of dental implants in Perth. Being aware of these factors should help put the cost of your implant in perspective.

The type of dental implant used

The implant fixture costs can vary depending on the quality, country of manufacture and scientific data backing the product.

The equipment and facilities used to perform the procedure

Modern technology comes at a cost. Practices with more technologically advanced equipment will often have higher fees to enable them to deliver the best treatment modalities available.

The labour costs

The skill level and experience of the support staff, particularly the clinical assistants, also plays a role in determining the cost of dental implant treatment. Like dentists, clinical nurses need to be trained for dental implant procedures. Consequently, the labour costs are higher than those for general dental treatment. Cost of Dental Implants Perth should only be one of the factors in your decision making process.

The skill of the dental technician in fabricating the dental implant prosthesis

As with most prosthodontic procedures, the dental technician and ceramist plays an important role in the final result of your implants as they physically fabricate the restorations /crowns. They are often underestimated as they work ‘behind the scenes’. Having an experienced dental technician consequently comes at a higher cost.

The dental laboratory and materials used to fabricate the dental implant prosthesis

We recommend you think very carefully before deciding where you have your dental implant treatment. When it comes to the quality of the materials, there should be little or no compromise. Laboratory fees can vary significantly depending on where the restoration is made and the materials that are used. Cost of Dental Implants Perth should only be one of the factors in your decision-making process.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Cost of Dental Implants Perth is only one factor you should consider.
