How much will an implant cost for me?

Often, patients get turned away due to lack of bone or gum, this is not a problem for us. 

With 3-4 different implant systems, and their own equipment set we can often achieve results which are not possible for others (every implant system has their own advantages).

HOWEVER, with so many options, it makes choosing more confusing and difficult.

Whilst we need you to come in for a consultation, sometimes its nice to just get a quick figure from a webpage.

Common prices/procedures which are completed in tandem with the treatment (but not included in the price here):

  • extractions: $200-400 per tooth pending complexity
  • grafting: $475 - 1000 per tooth/site.
  • provisional dentures or provisional bridges: $400 - $1500
  • your regular cleans, or periodontal debridement if required: ~$200 for regular cleans. 
  • Fillings on your teeth permeant or otherwise: $150 - $350

So, that was confusing, how much does an implant ACTUALLY 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.

How much is the consultation?

FREE.

No tricks or funny business. It would only cost you your time. Our Surgeon, Dr. Bok will see you for an assessment, take any x-rays required (including a CBVT), and explain your treatment to you. 

The only catch - if you would even call it a catch - is that we are very strict on the cancellation and rescheduling policy. 

Dr. Bok's books are quite full, and she spends an entire 60 minutes for her consultation. Generally dentists and specialists must bill $300 - 400 per hour. We believe that getting good quality advice shouldn't cost an arm and a leg, so no time wasters or else you'll be billed a no-show or cancellation fee (even though the consultation was meant to be free). 

The free consultation is no longer valid again if you fail to show or reschedule your appointment within 3 days of the appointment (its not easy to move things around when there are multiple components and surgeries to prepare for). 

Can I get more information?

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. 

Dental Implant Cost

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.
