Information on Dental Loans & Tooth Implant Cost in Australia?
In Australia patients researching dental costs online can often come up feeling empty handed or in extreme cases misled by the prices of dental services. Prices for Dental Implants can vary based on the location of the dental implant clinic. They can also vary based on the reputation and experience of the dental implant dentist involved in your procedure. Here, we will try to answer many common questions about Australian dental implant treatment costs as so many people ask “I want to fix my smile, so how much do teeth implants cost?”
Average Dental Implant costs in Australia
The average cost of dental implants, which includes the placement of a dental fixture (implant) is around$2000 – *This is for the surgical treatment only. Following a healing period, usually 3-6 months, an abutment and a crown is placed and attached to the fixture. This process, which involves several visits, will usually cost around$3000. This brings the avg. total cost per tooth to around $5000-5500.
Dental Implant prices will vary according to the need for bone grafting and provisionalisation (this should be very clearly explained in your consultation with your dentist).

“Cheap” Dental Implants
Do you know the true cost of cheap dental implants? There has been an explosion in the number of dental implant companies that have come onto the market however, these are not available worldwide like the ones from a reputable implant dentist will be. Not all dental implant companies base their implants on scientific evidence and research – what are you really putting in your mouth? A company such as Nobel Biocare is a world leader in innovative restorative and esthetic dental solutions. Cheaper implant systems have become readily available, but your tooth implant is a long term treatment option (as in 30 years+), and unfortunately with age, we tend to invariably lose more teeth. This means that often, existing implants need to be joined to more recently placed ones to formulate a new prosthesis. Accidents or wear and tear are a fact of life. It is not uncommon that “spare parts” are required. As with all new technologies, new attachments, screws and drivers are required- these need to be compatible with previously placed implants…
