The cost of dental implants in Essendon
Dental implant procedures are not a one size fits all solution. Every procedure we do at our Essendon dental surgery is unique to our patients and their requirements. Before we begin the procedure, we carefully plan how we want to proceed, using individualised patient assessments. Together with the patient, we discuss individual goals and treatment planning.
Because each treatment is unique and based on your own situation, we will provide you with a proper detailed quote at the final consultation, once we’ve viewed and assessed all information. Therefore, while this page contains price and timeframe information, please consider these figures as a guide only.
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.
Single implant costs
You will require an initial consultation, where we’ll take a 3D X-ray to view the quality of the jawbone. We will then discuss treatment options and create a plan.
The cost of this visit is $280.
The estimated cost of a single dental implant together with the prosthetic crown is $4,400.
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.
At our final consultation with you, we’ll discuss all these options and costs.
Multiple implant costs
It’s not uncommon to have a whole section of missing teeth. We can restore these sections by inserting multiple implants and making a dental bridge made which incorporates 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 about the costs for additional implant-related procedures?
Some patients may need related procedures to complete their dental implant treatment. These procedures include:
Surgical guides are milled using CAD-CAM technology. 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.
These additional procedures attract their own costs, and our dental team will discuss these costs before finalising and jointly agreeing on your treatment plan.
