Dental Implants: How Much Do They Cost?
One of the many teeth replacement options is dental implants. Dental implant surgery is done to replace missing teeth. It involves surgically attaching a screw in your jaw bone to secure a dental prosthesis. These prosthesis look and function like natural teeth.
Planning for your implant surgery can be very tedious as there are some factors you need to be aware of and prepare for.
Every procedure differs as it goes more than just replacing missing teeth. If you are deciding on going for dental implant surgery, our dentists will first have you come down for a regular dental check-up to see if you are suitable for dental implants. After which, our dentists will advise you on any additional procedure you may need to go through due to your mouth structure.
Generally, we divide the cost of the treatment plan into two different segments.
Cost of Dental Implant and Procedure
The primary thing is the procedure itself. The procedure of dental implant surgery includes:
- CT scans, Intraoral scans and 3D X-ray
- Digital surgical planning
- Bone Grafting/Sinus lifting (if required)
- Local anaesthesia (if required)
The cost of the implant varies depending on the type of implant best suited for you. At Nuffield Dental, we offer three different types of dental implant options for you, including:
- Tubero Pterygoid Dental Implants
- Zygomatic Dental Implants
- Metal-free Dental Implant
With each surgery, the prices differ.
Cost of a Dental Prosthesis
After dental implant placements, you will have to select the prosthesis that you require. This includes:
- Implant Crown
- Implant Bridge
- All-on-4 implant
The cost of your implant-supported prosthesis will differ depending on which one you need.
Need for Any Additional Surgery
In the case where your jawbone is too soft or not substantial enough, you may need bone grafting before getting dental implant surgery. This is due to the decisive chewing action where your mouth exerts excessive pressure on your bone. You may either need a sinus lift or bone grafting procedure to create a solid foundation for the long term success of your implant.
Planning Your Procedure
From the above information, you can see the procedure for dental implants vary from person to person. It depends on what they need and what they are looking for. You will have to come down for the dental appointment to find out what you will need exactly to come up with a rough estimate of your dental implant surgery.
The price of each dental implant also differs. At Nuffield Dental, we offer three different dental implants: Dentium, Nobel and Zeremex. The price for the implants’ price ranges from $3500-$6000 depending on which material you decide to select.
As of 2019, the payable amount for your dental implant surgery is MediSave claimable, up to $1250 for single dental implant surgery. If you require a bone graft or sinus lift procedure, you can choose which surgery you would like to be payable via MediSave.
