Whether you've lost a tooth due to an injury or dental disease, dental implants offer a more permanent alternative to a denture or bridge. Unlike dentures, you won't have to give up the food and drink you love or change your lifestyle. As long as you take care of your new teeth, implants can last for many years.
If you're considering replacing your teeth with implants, it's important that you have all the information you need to make your decision. That's why our dentists at Sydney CBD Dental offer an initial consultation where you can find out about what dental implants cost and ask any other questions you have.
Placing dental implants is a complex procedure involving oral surgery. It should only be performed by a suitably qualified and experienced dentist to minimise clinical risks and avoid the cost of unnecessary extra visits.
At Sydney CBD Dental, implant procedures are carried out under the leadership of our principal dentist, Dr Mark Sinclair. A former president of the Australian Dental Association's NSW Branch, Dr Sinclair has over 30 years of experience in the industry. Dental implants are his area of interest and expertise.
We use the latest dental equipment and restorative materials to ensure your dental implants meet the high aesthetic and clinical demands of the industry.
Our Sydney dental implants are made from strong titanium, a biocompatible metal that can fuse successfully with the jaw bone. Implants are covered by a porcelain dental crown that looks, feels and functions similar to natural tooth enamel.

Dental implants can be a big investment, but they have a number of advantages over other tooth replacement options. Here are 5 common reasons why patients choose dental implants at Sydney CBD Dental.
Unlike a dental bridge or denture that relies on the neighbouring teeth for support, dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone. Here, they essentially replace the root of the missing tooth, holding the replacement tooth, bridge or arch in place with greater stability.
As well as functioning like natural teeth, implants are also a close match visually. Our Sydney dentists can design your prosthetic tooth to closely match the size, shape and colour of your natural teeth, to help it blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Dental implants cost more than other tooth replacement options up-front, but they also tend to last much longer, making them more cost-effective in the long term. If you follow good oral hygiene to keep your teeth and gums healthy, your dental implants could last for decades.
Dental implants in Australia have a success rate of 90–98%, according to the Australian Dental Association (ADA). This is expected to increase even further as implant technology continues to improve. Success rates are high for all adult age groups, including seniors.
After dental implants are surgically placed inside the jaw, they can work like natural tooth roots to stimulate the growth of new tissue and preserve the jaw bone. This helps to avoid the sunken face look often associated with missing multiple teeth.
If you choose to have dental implants at Sydney CBD Dental after your initial consultation with our dentists, we'll schedule an appointment for an oral examination.
Our dentists will inspect the condition of your teeth, gums and jaws to determine if you are a suitable candidate for implants and use x-rays to plan the precise location of the implants in your jaws. We'll then draw up your personalised treatment plan to give you all the details you need to know about the treatment.
The dental implant procedure itself involves at least 2 visits to our dental clinic:
More steps may be needed for more complex treatments, such as those involving bone grafting.
Although it can take up to 6 months for your jaw to fully heal around the implant, most people can return to normal activities within a couple of days of the procedure. It's normal to experience some pain, swelling, bruising or minor bleeding after treatment. This should be temporary and can be managed with medication.
Our Sydney dentists take every precaution to prevent infection during oral surgery, but we'll still make sure you understand the possible risks. These can include infection around the implant site, damage to nerves or blood vessels or sinus problems for upper jaw implants.
A dental implant is a titanium post that's surgically placed in the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. The jaw bone heals around the implant, creating a solid foundation for teeth replacement using a fixed bridge, crown or denture.
Dental implants in Sydney CBD Dental require at least 2 visits to our clinic – the first to place the implant, the second to fit your replacement tooth or teeth.
Dental implants can last a lifetime when you choose a qualified and experienced implant dentist and take good care of your oral health.
Long-term studies of tooth implants have found a 90% to 98% success rate from treatments. This is higher than for other teeth replacement options, such as a bridge or dentures, which need to be replaced after a number of years.
If you have an implant treatment at our dental clinic in Sydney, dental implants will be placed using local anaesthesia to numb pain during the procedure. It's normal to feel some pain or discomfort for a few days afterwards, which can be managed by taking standard painkiller medication.
If you feel nervous about any aspect of the dental implant procedure, we can offer more pain relief and sedation options for anxious patients.
Average dental implants costs in Sydney CBD Dental are between $5000 and $6000 for teeth implants and $3000 for a crown.
