But no worries… The cost may vary depending on the treatment and services you receive, yet the prices are reasonable.
Generally, there are various kinds of factors that affect the cost of tooth implants in Australia. Some of those factors are discussed below…
Number of Implants: If the number of missing or damaged teeth needs to be replaced or restored is greater, probably the dentist requires more time and also additional materials to perform the procedure which affects the dental implant cost.
Patient’s Physical Condition: It depends on the factors such as age, jaw bone anatomy and oral hygiene which determine the need for additional treatments. Bone grafting or sinus lifts are the common treatment for many people that requires additional time and other material, so it raises the total implant procedure cost a little.
Picturing: If dentist recommends you for an x-ray or scan, it could be little expensive but anyhow you must go for it.
Building a crown on the top: Most of the dental implant companies offering it in the same pricing as building the crown on the top are not a major factor.
Size & Complexity of the Case: If you need more dental implants to be performed, it is considered to be a bigger case and it costs more than the average cost. Occasionally, some cases are more complicated, and it requires more “chair time”, in other cases you need to pay more.
