What Is the Cost of Dental Implant

Hi, I’m Dr Warren and I’m the principal dentist here from Lifestyle Smiles. I was with one of our patients David from Bentleigh yesterday, and he asked me, “How much do you charge for a dental implant?” We often get calls asking this very same question, so I thought I’ll make a video sharing with you a little bit more about the cost of dental implants.

As queer as it sounds, placing a dental implant is like buying a kitchen dining table… there are factors you need to consider before purchasing. For example, how many people do you want to fit around the dining table? 2, 4, 6 people, or more? Same with implants, you may need to replace 2 teeth, 4 teeth or a whole arch of teeth. You see a lot of people don’t realise that you don’t need an implant for each missing tooth. Sometimes you can get away of getting only 2 implants and have all of your bottom teeth replaced. Other times you may need 4, 6 or 8 implants. Each case is different, so it’s impossible to quote over the phone.
Another thing to consider when you buy a dining table is, how large is your kitchen? If you have a tiny kitchen, you might not be able to fit your desirable dining table into the available space. Same with dental implants, the jaw bone, is like, your kitchen space. If the quality or the quantity of the bone available is not enough, or not suitable for implants, then we might need to do some kitchen renovation first… before placing your dental implants, which will increase the cost.
Next thing to consider is, what are you planning to put on your dining table. If you have kids in your family who are not very careful, you may not want a glass dining table from ikea which can be brittle, but rather prefer something more sturdier.

In addition, the style, the quality, the craftsmanship of the dining table can also influence the price. Same with dental implants.

Generally speaking, in Australia if you are looking to replace a single missing tooth, a dental implant would cost anywhere between $4000-8000 with or without bone grafting, or $10,000-35,000 if you’re looking to replace a full full set of teeth. Yes you heard it correct, the difference between replacing a single tooth vs. having all of your teeth replaced with an implant prosthesis may be as little as $2,000. So next time when you pick up the phone and ask the receptionist, how much is an implant, the answer may not be as straight forward as you think.

I hope this video has given you some insights on the many variables that may affect the cost of dental implants. If you or anyone you know have missing teeth, we would love to help.
