Dental Implants Cost in Brisbane: From Single Implants to All-on-4 Dental Implants

You’ve looked into how much dental implants cost in Australia and it's in the thousands. So now you’re thinking about going overseas to get them done for half the price. Bali… Thailand, maybe… and have a holiday with the money you’ve saved. Sounds good? But wait. Before you book that plane ticket, read on.

The most common question people ask us about dental implants is "how much does it cost?". The problem is, that's actually a fairly complex question to answer.

In this article, we're diving into the details to help you get clarity on dental implants cost in Brisbane.

First of all, What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants serve as the next best thing after natural teeth. If you've lost a tooth or several, dental implants can restore your smile. They can restore both appearance and function.

The procedure comprises two primary steps:

  • 1. A titanium screw is surgically placed into your jawbone, acting as an anchor.
  • 2. The prosthetic tooth or crown is then attached to this screw.

Dental Implants Brisbane: How do they work?

Determining factors when it comes to the cost of dental implants in Brisbane.

Unfortunately, there’s no single treatment plan for dental implants. It’s very customisable – some patients may need more work, others less. This makes it difficult to put a fixed dollar figure on the dental implant cost.

It’s a bit like asking: “How much does a house cost?” There are so many designs and materials available to build a house. It's impossible to have an accurate idea of cost without a blueprint. Now - stay with me. I will give you some estimated dollar figures below. But first I wanted to explain some of the determining factors we do take into consideration.

  • Number of Implants: Are you replacing a single tooth or multiple? Naturally, more implants equate to a higher price. (I'll get to that more below).
  • Extra Procedures: Some patients might need bone grafts or tooth extractions, impacting the total cost.​
  • Complexity of Case: Are you able to complete treatment under local anaesthetic? Or is general anaesthetic with an Oral Surgeon required?

For a straightforward, single dental implant, you can expect a rough cost of around $7000 - $8000. This includes the crown (your new tooth).

If you need to replace all of your teeth, All-on-4 Dental Implants might be a viable consideration.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost Brisbane:

All-on-4 dental implants replace an entire row of missing teeth using four to six dental implants. The cost of this treatment generally tends to be higher due to its comprehensive nature. For this particular treatment, you are looking around $25,000 - $30,000 per row of teeth.

Can I get a rebate from my private health insurance?

Unfortunately, private health insurance only covers a small part of dental implant procedures. We recommend calling your insurer to see exactly how much they will help with.

How do people pay for dental implants?

Our patients use a range of finance options. One of our patients once said "I've just got to sell a couple of bulls and I'll be right." so people use all sorts of options to pay. For those of you who don't have any bulls running around in a paddock that you can sell, here are some of the options:

We have interest-free payment plan options. So you can pay treatment off over up to 2 years.

We also work with superannuation release companies. They help patients get early access to Superannuation on compassionate grounds. (Eligibility criteria applies).

But, could I go on holiday and get my dental implants in Turkey?

We hear this statement enough times I thought it needed an entire section of its own.

The idea of affordable dental implants combined with an exotic vacation sounds tempting. But the process isn't always as straightforward as it seems.

Dental implants can indeed be a seamless experience. But only when orchestrated with planning and following strict protocols. While quality dental surgeons do exist worldwide, the dental implant journey is intricate. It requires trust and open communication with the dental team. And regular follow-up after surgery.

Even with the best-laid plans, challenges can arise. Some red flags for overseas dental implants include:

  • Regulation Concerns: Dental treatment isn't as heavily regulated in other countries. Many foreign brands, varying in quality and price, don't meet Australian standards.
  • Complications with Repairs: In several instances, patients returning from abroad face complications. If the parts used aren't approved in Australia, we can't help you fix it.

Risk of Infections: Low quality dental implants can lead to infections. This can cause a loss of jawbone. This complicates the patient's condition and also makes any future surgeries more invasive.
