Why are dental implants so expensive in Australia?

The question of price is common, especially when affordability may be an issue.

The question of price is common, especially when affordability may be an issue. However, it's important to recognise that dentistry is not a commodity like a watch or clothing where the same item is available in many different stores so shopping around based on price and convenience makes sense. Dentistry, and in particular dental implant surgery, is not only dependent on the costs of components but more importantly on the exceptional skills and talents of the surgeon and laboratory technicians, as well as the systems and technology that they use to achieve a successful outcome.

The other consideration is that dental implants are permanent, and if done incorrectly the treatment can actually result in more complicated issues as well as progressive loss of jawbone making it difficult to undo and reducing future options and prospects. We see many such patients who require revision surgeries that are more complex, more expensive, and less predictable than if it were done correctly in the first place.

Of course, you can always find something cheaper, but when it's to do with your function, comfort, appearance, and most importantly health, is this something you are willing to accept as a compromise? This is far more critical than things you can replace. This is your health and you often only really get one shot at it to get it right, especially with irreversible treatments like dental implants.

At All-On-4 Clinic we are conscious of pricing because it is ingrained in our philosophy to ensure that our services are accessible and affordable to more people who need them, but we also want to make sure that what our patients get is the absolute best of everything, and we are not prepared to compromise on that.


Having treated many thousands of patients from all over the world, including from parts of the world where it may appear that similar treatment is available for half the price, our success and results speak for themselves.

So like paying a higher price for art because of the talent of the artist, or for a type of medication because of the research and cure, or for an intellectual property because of its originality, or for a certain car because of its performance, or for something beautiful because you love it, when it comes to dental implants treatment at All-On-4 Clinic it is a combination of all of those things, but in actual fact without the price tag that those kinds of things would collectively entail.

I would invite you to watch the All-On-4 surgery in practice to get some understanding of why it costs us so much to make sure that our patients get the very best.

All On 4 is an advanced surgical procedure that you would only want a professional surgeon with decades of experience to undertake. Beyond that, the actual process we use to make our Immediate Final Teeth with such a natural look and incredible function is only found in our clinics.

I would like to invite you to look at some of our dental implant surgeons’ professional accounts on places like Instagram. Dr. Alex Fibishenko has a good account that often shows many parts of the surgical procedure https://www.instagram.com/dralexfibishenko.

The techniques he uses only come after decades of training and thousands of All-On-4 cases (Dr. Alex is also the head of Dental Implants Masters which educates dental professionals from around the world), so by choosing the All-On-4 Clinic you know you are getting the best care.

If you are looking into our procedure, and you are interested in finding out more in-depth about the procedure I would recommend you make an appointment consultation at one of our offices through here www.allon4.com.au/consult
