Some people live with missing teeth for years. They know that it’s not easy chewing on the side with the missing tooth so they quite happily eat on the other side. No problem you may think! But over time, your gum, mouth and overall health will be impacted if the tooth isn’t replaced.

Tooth replacement with Dental implants can be a life changing procedure

We offer precision placement of titanium implants to replace your teeth. This means you can wave ‘goodbye’ to loose dentures and there will be no more unsightly gaps in your smile.

If you’re wearing removable dentures now, you’ll know how frustrating it can be to get food stuck under them. Dental implants will remove this frustration, and potential embarrassment, permanently. Picture having your removable dentures replaced with teeth that look like your other teeth and don’t move!

Teeth Implants

At Verve Dental, your teeth, gum and overall health is our top priority. We work with you so that, wherever possible, your missing teeth can be replaced.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

*The questions and answers relate to a simple single tooth replacement with dental implants.

How much do dental implants cost?

The placement of the implant usually costs between $2000-$2500 depending on the situation of your jaw. After 3 months we then attach a crown to the implant to match your neighbouring teeth. The making of the Crown costs around $2500.

So for the average, simple tooth replacement with a dental implant the cost is around $5000.

Cost can vary depending on many additional factors. These can include:

Do you require teeth removed prior to placing a dental implant.

Verve Dental

You may be asked to have a special 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) radiograph taken as part of your pre-clinical assessment. This will check if sufficient bone volume is available to place a dental implant.

Verve Dental

Do you need a temporary tooth/teeth while your implant heals. You may need a temporary denture so that you aren’t embarrassed to smile in public.

Verve Dental

Do you have sufficient bone to hold the implant in place successfully. If not bone grafting may be needed.

Verve Dental

Do you have any underlying gum infections? Gum infections (periodontal disease) can lead to a condition called peri-implantitis which is an infection of the gum around the implant. If left untreated it will lead to bone loss and implant failure. It is important that gum infections are treated before any implants are placed.

What is the state and condition of your remaining teeth? If neighbouring teeth are damaged or broken they may need repair to improve the chances of your new implant tooth surviving. A dental implant is a very solid strong tooth. if it is biting against a heavily filled tooth there is a chance it may break this opposing tooth.
