Affordable Dental Implants
Cheap dental implants
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth, that is placed into the jaw to replace a missing tooth. This can be done for cosmetic purposes, functional purposes, or both. Implants are the gold standard when it comes to replacing a missing tooth. Dental implants done in Woodville Rd Medical and Dental are guaranteed to last 10 years if looked after with regular check-ups and cleans. Although having a higher upfront cost compared to the cheap dental implants done overseas, the long-term costs are actually much more affordable.
* Free Implant consultation are specifically about the implant. For implants to be placed a sound oral environment is required. We will advise this on the day.
** If you have health insurance we will do a Gap-Free Consultation rather than free. There will be no out of pocket costs.
What is the cost of a Dental Implant?
Dental implants can range in price depending on the quality of work and the quality of the implant. Cheap dental implants done outside Australia, generally use materials that are inferior and eventually get rejected by the body and fail. At Woodville Rd Medical and Dental, we use state-of-the-art Implants that are precision-driven. We use newer technologies like 3D X-rays and equipment like Dental Oral Scanners to get a result that is more precise, accurate, and longer lasting than your cheaper implants. At our Merrylands clinic, we use newer technologies to make treatment more accesible and cheaper. Our Dental Implants cost $3500, which includes all the pre-scans, 3D x-ray, Treatment planning, Implant, and the crown that goes on top of the implant. There may be variations in these costs due to your specific needs but generally, the cost of Implants at our Merrylands Clinic is $3500.
How Is a Dental Implant Performed?
Dental Implants are long-term solutions to missing teeth. The newer technology of implant placement (Surgically guided), allows implant placement to be quicker, cheaper, faster, more accurate, and last longer than cheaper implants!
That being said, implants are not just placed overnight. The first step for any large process is to have a consultation. During this appointment, we will discuss options for the areas missing teeth and find the best solution tailored to your needs.
Once you are happy with this solution we will do a Dental Oral Scan and then send you off for bulk billed 3D x-ray which shows all the vital structures. From here we plan out the implant and get ready for your implant.
On the day of the implant, we will ask you to sign off on some consent forms. The procedure is usually less than an hour from start to finish. During the procedure you are completely numbed up, so you do not feel a thing. We then palace the implant and place a cover over it. This is to keep the implant undisturbed for the next 3-4 months and allow the bone and implant to join together and let the implant become part of the body. It is very important the implant is not played with and the dentist will go through with you some instructions regarding keeping the implant in good shape.
The implant journey continues 3-4 months after the implant is joined to the bone. At this appointment, we place the implant crown which is what gives the implant the normal tooth look. That’s about it.
The main thing to know is that isn’t the end of the journey. Placement is of the implant and crown that looks amazing but still requires maintenance just like the rest of your teeth. You must keep the implants in good condition and must make sure that you do your 6 monthly check-ups and cleans.
How long do the results from a Dental Implant procedure last?
Dental implants can last up to 10 years depending on how well you maintain the dental implant. The regular maintenance with 6 monthly check-ups and cleans means that Woodville Rd Medical and Dental can give a warranty on this! Cheaper implants that are usually done overseas will not see this kind of longevity and will usually fail after a few years. The issue with failing implants is that they usually dissolve the bone around the area, making placing a new implant more expensive and difficult.
What To Do Before A Dental Implant Procedure?
During your consultation, the dentist will go through the implant process with you and how to prepare for each appointment. From a patient standpoint, there is not much to prepare other than being on time and making sure that we have enough time during the consult to go through your questions and enough time during the procedure to finish with time to spare.
