How much will an implant cost for me?

This is a question many people have, but no one seems to be able to given an easy answer. The reason, is that everyone has very specific needs and treatment plans, so its not so simple.

90% of people would like to know how much a standard single implant costs if that's you, skip down below past the contact us form.

If you would like more information about Full mouth implant rehabilitation, due to the complexities and options available, please contact our clinic.

Taking a look at our implant information page, what needs to be realized, is that the dental implant by it self, is only just the titanium screw in the jaw. This does not include the abutment or the crown on top. 

Depending on your personal needs, there could be different abutments which we put onto the implants and different crowns we put onto the abutment. Any of these factors will change the price!

The best way to be sure, is to book in for a consultation, where we complete your treatment plan, with our own 3D cone beam machine.

Single Implant and Crown

Costs and Appointments

At Balmoral Dental Centre, with the economics of scale, and integrating our work flow, we are able to provide Astra implants with Genuine Astra abutments and parts at an extremely affordable price. While you complete the implant from start to finish, we are able to give you a bundle which is a lot less than the sum of all the appointments.

If you start from a site ready for dental implants (before the implant is placed and restored without requiring tooth extraction, gum, bone or sinus grafting), the whole implant placement procedure for a single implant is done at our clinic for $3995. This price is BEFORE any health fund rebates.

Please note that below is a general guide only, and a personalized treatment plan will be drafted after your consultation.
