When researching dental implant costs in Adelaide you are going to come across a lot of different price ranges, this is very normal. Even if you ask local dental professionals about the cost of dental implants nearby, you are never going to get a single price point as an answer.
You’re more likely to hear the classic phrase “It depends” because the thing is, it really does. Here are three major factors that affect dental implant costs plus at the end of the article, a general idea of what you can expect to pay.
1. The Number Of Implants Required
Naturally, getting a single dental implant takes less time, less appointments and costs less than getting multiple implants. So, if you are in need of a missing tooth replacement for just one tooth, you can expect your procedure costs to be at the lower end of the implants price spectrum.
2. The Type Of Implants You Are Getting
There are different dental implant options available in Adelaide to suit different patient cases. Three popular options that are offered at Burnside Dental are:
Single Tooth Implants
If you have lost a single tooth due to decay, injury, or periodontal disease, it can be replaced using a single dental implant. A dental implant replaces both the lost tooth and its root, meaning that no damage needs to occur to the neighbouring teeth. It also better protects the jawbone, keeping it healthy and intact.
The new artificial tooth attached to the implant will look, feel and function just like your other natural teeth. Many patients also find them easier to clean than other tooth replacement options.
Multiple Teeth Implants + Implant-Supported Bridges
If you’re missing multiple teeth, then implant-supported bridges may be the best option for you. If your older bridge has failed or you are tired of wearing a partial denture, multiple teeth implants in Adelaide can be placed. Unlike conventional bridges, dental implants do not involve touching your existing teeth. They replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing and comfortable, but a bridge supported by dental implants also functions just like your natural teeth.
All-On-Four Implants (Replaces Entire Upper/Lower Row)
If you need to replace a full upper and/or lower set of teeth, you may be able to receive all-on-four implants. During this procedure, four implants are placed into the jaw and a full set of non-removable teeth is attached to the implants – giving the procedure its name.
As there are only four implants used to support the full arch of replacement teeth, it’s a more cost-effective and easier-to-clean method than some other options. Our dentists may recommend all-on-four dental implants in Adelaide for cases where patients have lost, or are about to lose, all their teeth. It allows you to experience a very similar look, feel and function to natural teeth.
3. Private Health Insurance
Some private health insurance policies that cover ‘major dental’ treatments can help lower the costs of dental implants. Pay close attention to your policy details to confirm the details.
So, What’s The Average Cost?
Now, you have a better understanding of what makes the dental implants price range so broad, let’s get into the actual cost. On average, dental implants costs range from about $2,000 and $7,000** per tooth. This is the Australian average as reported on Finder in 2021.
