Bexley Dental: The Cost Of All On 4
August 29, 2022 at 16:09
Bexley Dental, a NSW based dental clinic, would like to talk about how people can make better, more informed decisions regarding their All on 4 dental procedures. By examining the factors that influence the cost of the treatment and learning how and why they may find themselves paying certain charges, anyone receiving the All on 4 procedure can make better, cost saving decisions.
According to the clinic, the factors that primarily influence the cost and outcome of the procedure are the dentist’s education (and thus ability to provide a comfortable experience with long lasting results), the materials used and the dentist’s range of experience regarding implant procedures. The cost of All on 4 can vary greatly as a result, and it is important to take them into account.
“The All on 4 dental implant may be a steep investment for many,” Bexley Dental says. “What’s more, there is a wide disparity of available prices for the treatment, depending on the scope and type of treatment needed. All on 4 dental implants can cost anywhere from $18,000 to $30,000 per single arch of teeth. Spending that amount of money on dental treatment is a considerable investment, so it’s vital to ensure that you are getting the best possible treatment for your money. It can certainly be tempting to choose a dentist based on price, but understanding what goes into making up the price will help you to make a more informed decision. Many dentists may appear on the surface to have all of the necessary qualifications to offer the All on 4 treatment.”
All on 4 implants are very popular thanks to the fact that they are effectively a permanent solution once bone integration takes place. While still a relatively new treatment, All on 4 implants last decades — if not a lifetime — when installed by an experienced professional who knows exactly what they are doing. However, like with natural teeth, their longevity is affected by how well they are looked after. The success rate and longevity of the implants is very high and failure is rare but not totally unheard of. Working with an experienced, highly qualified dentist makes failure very uncommon, if not impossible, depending on the patient in question.
There are a number of payment plans available for All on 4 treatments due to the high cost of the procedure. The majority of payment plans are offered through a third party provider, some of whom have partnerships with dentists and others without. It is important to review all the available options before making a decision in order to ensure that the decision one makes ends up being the best one. All on 4 is expensive and long term enough to be considered a significant investment, which is why doing thorough research before committing to it is necessary.
One commonly used payment option is superannuation. Bexley Dental says, “In the case that there are no other available finance options, it may be possible to access your superannuation. The Early Release Super (ERS) allows you to apply to use your superannuation based on compassionate grounds. If your dental condition is serious and causing you significant pain, then you may be able to use this to cover the cost of your All on 4 treatment. If you want to find out if you can use your superannuation, then you’ll need to fill out an application form. Once you have filled out the application form, you will find out if you are eligible. It’s worthwhile ensuring you’ve completed all the details accurately to maximise your chances. At Bexley Dental, we partner with a company who help prepare the application and ensure that all the details are filled out correctly to maximise your chances of receiving the funding you need. This service costs $749. While the All on 4 treatment is a significant investment, fortunately, there are financing options available to help with the cost. Make sure you discuss the cost of treatment with your dentist and are fully informed of all your options before coming to a decision.”
