When it comes to oral functionality and smile restoration, dental implants could be the perfect solution for you. At Toowoomba Specialist Dental, our experienced Prosthodontists specialise in dental implant procedures, with years of experience on a range of cases, complex and not, we are dedicated to offering you a reliable and long-lasting solution. There are various factors that contribute to the cost of dental implants and we’ll provide you with the necessary information to make the right decision for your teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants consist of a titanium root and an artificial tooth that replaces the entire structure of a missing tooth. Unlike traditional dentures, implants provide a secure fit with minimal movement along the gums, and provide a natural appearance to enhance your chewing ability and speech.

Types of Dental Implant Treatments

  1.  Single Implants

For patients with one missing tooth, single implants involve placing an implant and attaching a prosthetic tooth, providing a natural looking replacement that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. 

  1.  Implant Bridges

If you have multiple adjacent missing teeth, an implant bridge could be the right choice for you. This treatment involves using dental implants to support a bridge of artificial teeth, restoring the aesthetics and function of your smile.

  1.  All-On-4

All-On-4 is an innovative advanced technique that utilises just four implant posts to support a full set of replacement top or bottom teeth. This approach significantly reduces treatment time as well as recovery period, and mos importantly reduces cost while delivering exceptional results. It is particularly suitable for patients who have lost all their teeth on one or both arches or patients who are soon to have all of their teeth extracted.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer numerous benefits that make them the gold standard in tooth restoration:

  1. Enhanced Aesthetics: Dental implants provide you with a smile that looks natural. At Toowoomba Specialist Dental our dental implant experts using state of the art technology and materials will provide you with the perfect dental implants to compliment your smile. 
  1. Improved Functionality: Unlike dentures, implants allow you to enjoy natural chewing and speech without the worry of slipping or discomfort.

Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular oral hygiene practices such as brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are necessary for their maintenance.

What Are the Costs of Dental Implants?

When considering dental implants, it’s essential to understand the cost factors involved. The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including:

  1. Number of Implants: The total cost will depend on the number of implants needed to restore your smile. Single implants for individual missing teeth will naturally have a different cost compared to full arch replacements.
  1. Type of Restoration: The type of restoration you choose, such as single implants, implant bridges, or All-On-4, will impact the overall cost. Each treatment option has its associated expenses, which can be discussed during your consultation.
  1. Additional Procedures: In some cases, additional procedures may be necessary, such as bone grafting or sinus lifts, to ensure the success of dental implant placement. These procedures can contribute to the overall cost.

It’s important to note that dental implants are a long-term investment in your oral health and quality of life. While the initial cost may seem higher compared to other tooth replacement options, their durability and natural appearance make them a worthwhile investment over time.
