About Dental Implants Consultations
We have formed a list of some of the common questions our patients ask us
to help you learn more about this treatment:
The proper way to determine if dental implants are appropriate for you is by undergoing an initial consultation with us. However, some general factors may prevent someone from receiving dental implant treatment, including:
- Gum disease at the time of implant placement
- Poor oral care routine
- Chronic medical conditions
- Extensive bone loss in the jaw
- Smoking habits
- Teeth-grinding habits
Even if you have one or more of these risk factors, you may still have dental implants. Dental procedures, such as bone grafting, are available to help manage these issues. Your qualified health practitioner will discuss these with you during your implant consultation.
To know if you are a good candidate for teeth implants, it’s important to consult with the dentists at our clinic. They will examine your natural teeth and gums to determine the state of your oral health. These include any risk factors that could affect the outcome of your dental implant procedure.
In addition, they will perform tests, such as x-rays or CT scans. This will help assess the condition of your jawbone and determine if there is adequate bone structure to support the implants.
Most patients will need to wait until their mouth has healed after a tooth extraction before receiving dental implants. It typically takes three to six months, but this will depend on each patient’s unique situation. This is so that the gums and jawbone have had time to heal and the wound from your tooth extraction has fully closed.
The price of dental implants will depend on different factors, such as:
- The location of the clinic
- The materials used for your implant
- The number of implants placed
- The need for additional procedures
However, here are the average costs of the following common dental implant services:
- Single dental implants: $4,000–$7,000
- All-on-4 dental implants: $21,300 – $35,300
- Implant-retained dentures: $22,000-$42,000
It must be noted that these are just average prices. The dentists at our clinic can provide you with a more accurate estimate.
This will depend on your health fund and level of cover. Some health funds will cover a portion of the dental implants costs. We recommend speaking to your health insurance provider directly to know what benefits you have and whether you are eligible for a rebate.
