How Much Does Dental Bone Grafting Cost in Australia?

Factors That Affect The Cost Of Dental Bone Grafting

Geographic Location

Geographic location is a significant factor in determining the cost of dental bone grafting. In major cities, the cost of bone grafting tends to be higher than in remote areas.

Extent Of Bone Loss

The extent of bone loss is another critical factor that determines the cost of dental bone grafting. The more significant the bone loss, the more extensive the grafting procedure will be. The complexity of the procedure and the completion time can also impact the cost.

Experience And Expertise Of The Dentist

The experience and expertise of the dentist performing the procedure also affect the cost of dental bone grafting. Experienced dentists with recognised training in bone grafting typically charge more for their services. However, choosing a qualified and experienced dentist such as My Implant Dentist can reduce the risk of complications and improve the success rate of the procedure.

Dental Bone Grafting Cost in Australia

Average Cost Of Dental Bone Grafting

The cost of dental bone grafting varies depending on several factors. On average, the cost ranges from $3,000 to $8,000 per graft in Australia. However, it can be as high as $5,000 or more for complex cases.

Options For Financing Dental Bone Grafting

Dental Insurance

Dental insurance can be an excellent way to help cover the cost of dental bone grafting. Many dental insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost of the procedure, depending on your plan and coverage. Check with your dental insurance provider to see if your dental plan covers bone grafting.

Payment Plans

My Implant Dentist offers dental payment plans to help patients finance the dental bone grafting cost. Payment plans involve breaking down the total cost of the procedure into smaller, more manageable payments. 

You should inquire with your dental practice about the availability of payment plans and any associated fees or interest rates. We will be happy to put you through at My Implant Dentist.

Dental Financing Companies

Dental financing companies can also provide financing options for patients who need help paying for dental bone grafting. These companies offer loans specifically designed for dental procedures, with competitive interest rates and flexible repayment terms. You should research different dental financing companies to find one that fits your individual needs and budget.

Personal Loans

You can also consider taking out a personal loan to finance the cost of dental bone grafting. You can get personal loans from banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. These loans typically have higher interest rates than dental financing loans, but they can be a good option for patients who need more flexibility in terms of repayment.


Are Jawbone Grafts Expensive?

Yes, jawbone grafts can be expensive. Costs vary depending on factors such as location, the extent of bone loss, the type of graft, and the expertise of the dentist.

Do Dental Bone Grafts Use Real Bone?

Yes, dental bone grafts can use either real bone (autogenous, allogenic or xenograft) or synthetic materials.

What Bone Is Best For Bone Graft?

The best type of bone for a graft depends on the patient’s needs and the type of procedure being performed. Each type of bone grafts has advantages and disadvantages.

Is Dental Bone Graft Worth It?

It can be a valuable procedure for restoring missing or damaged bone in the jaw and providing a solid foundation for dental implants or other restorative treatments. However, you should consult a qualified dentist before deciding to undergo a dental bone graft.

How Painful Is Bone Graft Surgery?

Bone graft surgery can cause some discomfort or mild pain. This can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication, but the pain level can vary depending on the individual patient’s pain tolerance.

I was at a really low point in my life, had an accident 2 years ago which broke 3 of my teeth and a bridge in between my 2 front top teeth. From that moment I became extremely conscious of going out,socialising and found my self withdrawn and depressed as I didn't know what to do.Then a friend told me about My Implant Dentist. I plucked up the courage and went for my first consultation at Mindarie Quinns dental practice with Dr Zaheer who explained all my options and advised all on 4 top and bottom.Not only Dr Zaheer but all the staff and doctors at both Mindarie and South Perth were amazing and extremely professional and made the whole process seemless.Having the treatment has given me back confidence and enabled me to socalise and do things with my family and friends that I couldn't do before.I would like to thank Dr Zaheer and all the team at My Implant Dentist for everything they have done for me and recommended them to everyone I speak to.I just can't stop smiling!!!

From the moment I walked in the door My Implant dentist were very caring and professional. As a dental nurse myself I knew I would be a very hard case as other specialists said they could not help me. After my first consultation with Dr Kent he was confident that he could help me and I was provided with a clear plan for my top and bottom all on four procedure. My new teeth are perfect and so natural looking. He has made the impossible possible for me. I can smile and eat the foods I love again and this has changed my life. Thank you so much to all staff and especially Dr Kent Tan who I can say is the best implant dentist in Perth.

I picked up”Moorooka Dental Care” contact details from the web. I rang for a few questions and the happy voice of Frances had calmed my anxiety down quickly!Dr Kadwa greeted me from the front bench, took me in for the X-ray, dental assessment, carefully explaining the procedure, answered my questions and quoted for the works. He offered to breakdown work items to suit with my needs. The quote was surprisingly very compatible with my previous quote from overseas. (I know I am going to have my dental treatment in the safe zone, most medical advances in Australia).The implant work went smoothly, so smooth that the team had to remind me “Done!”, well beyond my imagination.When he saw me off with the aftercare instructions, I could feel his professional manners with caring characters. I know he has done a few thousand implants but I still received the care of his first. Thanks Zaheer!I requested X-ray images, Fatimatu responded promptly with friendly chatting.I also would like to thank Dr Linh Trần who was in the operation team at the treatment and follow up cares.

Moorooka dental have been a pleasure to deal with. I did a bit of research into dental implants and most companies had hidden fees. I booked a consult and was contacted within a few hrs to get me in and get the ball rolling. I choose to go with he implants using my super. They helped me to do all the paperwork to release the money. Definitely a good dental clinic.
