Cost is a big consideration and the most commonly asked question from people who are considering this treatment. With traditional methods of using 5 to 8 implants, an upper or lower arch would cost $30,000 – $50,000.
With the advent of new fixed denture technology, the cost of rehabilitating full arch of teeth has come down. This is because there is often no need for bone grafting and enables the dentist to use only 4 implants.
See the table below for the range of total teeth replacement implant treatment fees:
|Lower Teeth Replacement Cost | Immediate Fixed Replacement Teeth on Dental Implants
||$18,000 – $25,000
|Upper Teeth Replacement Cost | Immediate Fixed Replacement Teeth on Dental Implants
||$18,000 – $25,000
|Upper & Lower Immediate Fixed Teeth | Replacement on Dental Implants
||$38,000 – $45,000
The wide range of fees are due to the following reasons:
- Type of implants used for the procedure
- Need for bone grafts to regenerate lost bone
- Quality and the quantity of bone available in your mouth
- Diagnostic tests before the surgery
- Quality of the final restoration (teeth)
- Customisation required
- Experience/skill of your dentist/surgeon
- Having surgery performed under general or local anaesthetic
We are a small practice and therefore we are able to focus on your individual needs, providing the utmost care. Our fees reflect the highest quality of outcome we deliver. Whilst still priced at the lower end, we offer value for your money by incorporating in our fees many options often offered as additions in other clinics. If you need both upper and lower arches done at the same time, it takes less time to complete than if they were done individually, offering savings when done together.
In some cases, you may be able to have some cost alleviated by your dental insurance. However, most insurance companies only offer small rebates.
Remember that nothing in life worth having comes free or cheap, so be careful with big discounts or cheap overseas “solutions”. Be certain that the dentist you choose is experienced, offers ongoing care after initial treatment completion and uses trusted implant providers so that if you require a part replacement years later, components are freely available.
Though by no means this is a low-cost treatment, brand new teeth are an investment that will positively influence your appearance and your overall health.
