What is the cost of dental implants?
Dental Implants are not a one size fits all solution. Every procedure that we do is unique to our patients and is based from careful planning and individual assessments prior to undertaking the procedures. Individual goals and treatment planning must be discussed together.
Because each treatment is unique and based on your own situation, a proper detailed quote will be provided to you at the final consultation, once all information is looked at. The fees and timeframes on this page are to be used as a guide only.
At FirstBite Dental, we only use Australian laboratories for all our treatment services, and genuine components with reputable implant systems. When it comes to the health and maintenance of your teeth, we won’t compromise quality for cost.
How much does a dental implant cost for one tooth?
An initial consultation is required, and a 3D xray taken, to view the quality of the jawbone. Treatment options can then be discussed and a plan created.
The cost of this visit is $280.
The estimated cost of a dental implant together with the prosthetic crown is $4400.
This is done in 2 to 3 stages, and takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months to complete.
If a front tooth is missing, and a temporary replacement is needed in the interim while the implant is healing, then there are options available. In some cases, there is lack of bone, or obstacles in the way like the sinus. All these will be discussed and there is more information about this below.
We use the latest in technological advances to effectively and accurately place our dental implants, and we do this by using CAD – CAM milled surgical guides.
All these options and costs will be discussed at our final consultation with you.
How much do dental implants cost for more than one tooth?
It is not uncommon to have a whole section of missing teeth. These can be restored by placing multiple implants and having a dental bridge made which can incorporate multiple teeth in one prosthesis. With the use of new technological advances, we are able to use Surgical Guides to aid in the effective and accurate placement of our dental implants.
The same process and procedures apply as above, and options and costs can be discussed at the initial consultation.
How much does it cost to replace a whole set of teeth?
Implants can be used to replace up to 12-14 teeth with the use of Implant Supported Dentures. Other common names for these include All on 4 or All on 6, which indicates the number of implants being used.

What is Bone Grafting?
There are multiple situations where the need for bone grafting is necessary. Bone Grafting can be used immediately after removing a tooth, if an implant is planned. Or it can be used during the implant surgery in situations where the bone quality is not ideal. The use of these bone grafting materials come at an extra cost, and will be discussed at the time of consultation.
More information about bone grafting can be found here.
What is a Sinus Lift?
Placement of an implant in the top back tooth area can sometimes be complicated by the lack of bone and the position of our sinuses. This will create an obstacle in our planning and placement of an implant. Options and costs to get around this problem can be discussed at the consultation.

What are Surgical Guides?
Technological advances in recent times have allowed us to perform surgery more accurately and safely with long lasting outcomes. These surgical guides are milled with CAD CAM technologies. They use the images acquired from our 3D scans, together with an imprint of your teeth, to create a guide to precisely position your implants during surgery.
