How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Posted on: March 15, 2021
Living with tooth loss can be a real struggle, especially when it comes to the way you speak, the foods you can eat, and most importantly, your smile. While there are many solutions to replacing teeth, nothing matches the benefits and aesthetics of dental implants. Often considered to be the gold standard solution for replacing missing or failing teeth, implants mimic the function and appearance of a natural tooth, and with proper care, can last you for years to come.
One of the most common questions that patients ask in regards to dental implants is about the cost of their procedure. While it is true that dental implants are not the cheapest option, many patients find that over the course of their lifetime, implants prove to be a life changing investment that saves them on time, headache, and overall cost. If you’re looking to restore the appearance and function of your mouth, scheduling a consultation at Perth Dental Implant Centre is the first step towards a lifetime of healthier smiles.
What Influences the Cost of Dental Implants?
The overall cost of dental implants is difficult to provide without first receiving an in-depth examination by our experienced dentists here at Perth Dental Implant Centre. You’ll see below that we can provide you with an estimated cost of the implant treatment itself, but there are many other factors that you, and our team, will need to consider that may alter that price. This is because receiving dental implants is an advanced surgical procedure that requires patients to have a healthy mouth, as well as requires our dentists and team to use years of education, experience, and technology to get you proven success.
Factors that are often considered and impact the overall cost of dental implants include:
- Bone volume in the jaw
- Location and number of teeth to be replaced
- Presence of gum disease
- Underlying health or medical conditions
- The implant solutions that you choose
- Technology and restoration options
Your Dental Implant Options and Cost
Dental implants are a versatile tooth replacement solution, and give patients options when it comes to replacement. Whether you are just missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or need to restore your entire mouth, Perth Dental Implant Centre has affordable, effective dental implant options for you.

Single Tooth Dental Implants
Single tooth implants are ideal for replacing one tooth or a few teeth that are missing in different areas of the mouth. This option is a one-for-one replacement, where the dental implant will directly replace the individual tooth. A single tooth dental implant includes a biocompatible implant post that is surgically placed within the jaw bone, a functional and aesthetic dental crown, and an abutment piece to connect everything together. Once fully healed, a single dental implant can blend in seamlessly with surrounding teeth and give you a complete and functional smile again.
This option can be suitable for patients who have an overall healthy mouth, but have one or two problem areas or missing teeth. Single dental implants are able to complete your smile again and get you back to living your normal life. However, if you have many missing teeth or teeth that are failing due to disease, damage, or poor structural support, replacing them one at a time may not be the ideal option as it can be more costly in the long run. To find out if a single dental implant is ideal for your specific case, schedule a consultation with our team.
Single Tooth Dental Implant Price: From $3,950
Includes placement of an MIS Seven titanium dental implant; titanium abutment; CAD-CAM milled monolithic zirconia crown and x-rays during treatment. (Price excludes 3D CBCT scan of $205, used to check jaw bone density and quality).
While dentures are a common and inexpensive option for those with tooth loss, dental implants can help provide patients with a more secure, comfortable and long-term solution. By placing as few as two implants into the top or bottom jaw, our team can secure them to a denture prosthesis. The benefit this offers patients is greatly improved stability within the mouth, a stronger overall bite, and improved comfort while wearing them. Implant-retained dentures can solve for many of the common problems denture wearers experience.
Implant-retained dentures are excellent for those who are already wearing dentures, or those who will soon need to transition to them. The benefits make wearing dentures much more convenient. This is also ideal for those who have minimal bone support, but can take some getting used to because they still require patients to remove them for cleaning and sleeping. If you are looking for a fixed solution, fixed full mouth implant bridges may be a better option.
Implant-Retained Dentures Price: From $7,000
Fixed Full Mouth Implant Bridges
Patients who have a full mouth of missing or failing teeth can completely replace either top or bottom arch, or both, with brand new teeth. With as few as four dental implants placed into the jaw bone, we can create a fixed bridge of teeth that look, feel, and function naturally. This means that the teeth are permanently attached to your jaw, which provides a natural, comfortable, stable, and strong bite. You’ll be able to live life without thinking about your prosthetic teeth aside from routine cleaning and dental appointments.
A fixed full mouth implant bridge is ideal for those who want the closest thing to a natural smile. This dental implant option not only restores the function and aesthetics to the smile, but also promotes bone growth in the jaw. Since patients never have to remove the teeth, they are able to live a much more natural lifestyle. While the cost may be more than other options, patients can find the lifestyle benefits and longevity of the solution to be worthwhile.
Fixed Full Mouth Implant Bridges Price: From $18,000 per arch, $34,000 for both.
