No Teeth? No Problem! Implant Dentistry – The Why, The How & The Cost

September 26,2018

Do you have teeth that have become damaged beyond repair? Are you seeking dental implants as replacements so you can continue your day-to-day activities without being impaired? People who lose their natural teeth and need implants can have many concerns and questions they want answered, including how they’re implemented and what they cost. This blog post contains all the information you need to put your mind at ease.

Dental Implants – The Why

Most dentists offer various restorative treatments for natural teeth, but sometimes the decay and damage is too extensive. In these situations, natural teeth need to be replaced with dental implants, which are appropriate for people of all ages. There are various types of dental implants available, including:

  • Single Dental Implant – A single damaged tooth can be replaced with an artificial alternative without affecting undamaged natural teeth
  • Multiple Dental Implants – Artificial teeth can replace multiple natural teeth that have been damaged
  • Full Arch Implants – In more extreme situations where every natural tooth is missing or damaged beyond repair, artificial replacements can be provided for all of them

Dental Implants – The How

Before you get dental implants, a comprehensive oral health assessment will be required to determine your suitability for the treatment and evaluate the condition of your teeth. A dentist will use this information to formulate a tailored treatment plan that meets your needs and helps minimise unnecessary complications.

Dental Implants – The Cost

The cost of dental implants can vary widely depending on your specific circumstances, but flexible payment options are generally available to help you pay. EFTPOS, cash and monthly payment plans through zipMoney are just some of the available options for dental implants.
