Number one, for a dental or medical product to be imported and registered here in Australia, because of the very strict TGA approval process and standard, as well as the distance we are from the rest of the world, it ended up costing more for a manufacturer to have their products here compared to some other countries.
Secondly, Australia does have high labour costs compared to many other countries. So the cost of delivering the service in Australia affect the price of dental implants treatment in this country.
Thirdly, our tax is also one of the highest in the world, so as a result, dental implant treatment would cost more here in Australia compared to some other countries.
Having said that though, a dental implant is still one of the most effective ways to replace a single missing tooth.
Often it’s also the best way to replace multiple missing teeth. A dental implant consists of three components. You’ve got the surgical component of the dental implant itself, and the cost of that would vary between eighteen hundred to twenty-five hundred dollars for the actual procedure itself.
Secondly, which is the main difference, is the quality of your bone. If the quality or the volume of your bone is poor, then you might need some additional bone grafting, or even soft tissue grafting to bulk up the quality of the host prior to placing the implant.
And on the other hand, if you have three missing teeth, you may only need two implants to support three teeth. So you don’t need one single implant for every single missing tooth. If you’re missing a whole row of teeth, or if you’re missing all of your teeth, sometimes you may need as little as two or even four implants on your entire jaw to support whatever we’re going to put on top. So, as you can see, it’s not as simple as how much does the implant costs multiply by how many missing teeth you have.
Generally speaking, if you’re looking at implant and the restorative part, the restorative part for a single tooth could be as little as two k to two and a half k. Whereas if you want the whole arch fixed with implants, which is called all-teeth-on-four, or all-on-4, then the cost for your whole arch could be anywhere between ten to twenty thousand dollars.

Dentistry has changed a lot since a dentist graduated from the dental school. One practitioner told me changes come “almost daily.”
If you are like most dental patients, you probably have no idea which dental lab your dentist is using. This lack of information could cost you dearly.
