A dental implant replaces a missing tooth or teeth and looks and functions like a natural tooth. The steps typically involved are:
How much do dental implants cost?
At Dental Residence, Implants range from $2800 - $6600. Price varies depending on the type of implant required, if a bone graft is necessary and how close certain anatomical structures are to the implant.
How long do dental implants last?
Implants are a ‘permanent’ solution. As long as you care for the implant like a normal tooth, it can last a lifetime. However, just like natural teeth, if you fail to brush, floss and have a healthy lifestyle, it will increase the chances of problems arising with the implant tooth.
How much will my Health Fund cover?
The amount that your health fund will cover will vary greatly depending on the health fund and the level of coverage you have. So it is important to do your research. The main costs of Dental Implants covered by health funds will be in the ‘Major Dental’ category and top Extra Covers could cover up to $2000 of the procedure.
