What is the True Cost of Damaged or Missing Teeth?

Losing your teeth can have a dramatic impact on how you look and feel, not to mention your oral health. Even a single missing tooth can be very noticeable when you open your mouth to talk, eat or smile. Then over time, the gap itself can impact the structure of your jaw and face, further changing the way you look and impacting your self-confidence.


When you’ve got missing or damaged teeth, the type of teeth replacement you opt for can make all the difference to how you look and feel afterwards. While removable dentures solve the problem to some extent, they can still be uncomfortable and embarrassing and don’t provide the same biting force as natural teeth.


The result is that, while you might look more like the old you, you still won’t be able to eat and talk like you used to.

The Dental Implant

Dental implants are able to prevent all of those problems; by replacing the root of missing teeth, you can create a permanent replacement for missing teeth, restore your natural smile and regain your confidence.


Dental implants differ from other teeth replacements in that they replace not only the tooth itself but the missing root. The replacement root, a titanium screw, bonds with the jawbone to create an incredibly strong foundation for prosthetic teeth. What’s more, by replacing the root of the tooth, the jawbone is stimulated and further growth encouraged, supporting your facial aesthetics and your remaining teeth.

What is All on 4?

All on 4 implants are similar to conventional dental implants in that they replace the root structure of missing teeth. However, All on 4 is an innovative take on the same idea, positioning implants at a cleverly designed angle to avoid bone-deficient areas in the mouth and deliver maximum torque. The result is that instead of requiring eight or more implants to replace a full arch of teeth, only four are needed.


With All on 4, instead of having to wait months for implants to be complete, they can be placed in a matter of days. The All on 4 procedure is less invasive, requires fewer preliminary procedures, and is suitable for more complex cases. What’s more, the faster recovery time means that you can be back home and smiling in no time.

Who is Suitable For Dental Implants?

All on 4 is often suitable for more complex cases and is therefore a possible treatment option for anyone with damaged or missing teeth. Whether you’ve lost teeth due to injury, have gum disease, or if you have multiple missing teeth, All on 4 might be able to help. However, as with all treatments, your suitability can only be confirmed following a comprehensive examination.


To determine whether you are a suitable candidate for All on 4, your implant dentist will review your medical history, take x-rays of your jaw and remaining teeth and consider any lifestyle choices that might impact the success of treatment.


To find out if you are suitable for dental implant surgery, take our dental implant suitability quiz. Just answer a few questions and we will send your results immediately.

How to Choose an Implant Dentist?

There are lots of dentists who offer implant treatments which can make choosing between them incredibly difficult. However, it’s vital to understand what you’re being offered and to not make a choice based on cost alone. To ensure you get the best quality treatment, service, and results, you should always take the following three factors into consideration:

Dentist Training

While it’s relatively simple for dentists to take short courses to qualify them to place dental implants, that doesn’t mean that they are highly trained. When looking for an implant dentist, it’s vital to look for someone who is dedicated to implantology, has taken intensive postgraduate courses, and has focused their career on dental implants. This way, you know your dentist has the clinical, theoretical, and practical education required to offer high-quality treatment.

Experience of the Dentist

If dental implant treatment is just another service amongst many, there is no way for you to know how much experience your dentist actually has. What you need to look for is a dentist who performs dental implant surgery daily, has a wide range of practical experience, and has encountered a variety of different cases. By choosing an experienced implant dentist, you can be confident that regardless of the complexity of your case, you’re in safe hands.

Quality of Materials

It’s not just the dentist that makes a difference to your treatment outcome, the materials used are equally as important. You are well within your rights to question any potential dentist about your implants and where they’re manufactured. Your implants should adhere to Australian safety regulations and be made from high-quality materials. By checking this at the beginning, you can avoid complications caused by low-cost and inferior materials.

What Does it Mean to be a Dental Implant Expert?

While on the surface, all dentists offering implants may seem the same, that’s far from the case. A dental implant expert will dedicate their whole career to dental implants. Not only do they have the necessary training and experience, but they continue to learn, train and develop their skills.


A dental implant expert is a dentist who has dedicated their career to implantology and has trained and worked alongside some of the best in the field. The best implant dentists will be highly skilled and experienced in both surgical and cosmetic dentistry. This means they can accurately position the implants into the jaw bone, while at the same time, utilising their skills and knowledge as a cosmetic dentist to deliver a beautiful aesthetic outcome.


While there is always a risk of complications when it comes to any surgery, those risks are greatly reduced by a dental implant expert. Moreover, when you choose an implant expert for your treatment, you are far more likely to experience a successful treatment and your smile will be set in place for many years to come.

    Meet Dr Michael Shehata


    Dr Shehata understands only too well what it’s like to dislike visiting the dentist. A traumatic childhood experience has stayed with him to this day. However, despite his fear, he found himself doing a dental degree at Griffith University in Queensland and soon learnt the difference that dentists can make. Upon graduating and ranking 2nd in his cohort, he was made a member of the Golden Key Club for Academic Excellence and then moved to Sydney to work as an associate dentist for many of the leading dentists in Australia.

    Dr Shehata has dedicated not only his career but his personal time to his craft. He spent the first seven years of his career doing extensive courses and investing further in his education. After exhausting the courses in Australia, he looked overseas for implantology training and did everything in his power to train with the very best and hone his skills. He has completed the Brener Implant Institute Masters Implant Program, achieved a Masters in Oral Surgery and attended Dr Malo’s, the creator of the All on 4 technique, clinical residency in Portugal.


    When the opportunity presented itself for Dr Shehata to run his own purpose-built practice, he was determined to create somewhere comfortable that would cater to anxious people. Whether they hated the taste of mint, the sound of drills or the smell of a dental practice, he put measures in place to help. Aromatherapy, wireless headphones, soundproofing, needleless services, therapeutic anaesthetic and more are at the very essence of Sensational Smiles Dental.


    Dr Shehata loves implantology, carrying out the procedures and seeing the difference it makes to his patients’ lives and their ability to smile. He places implants every day, thousands each year and has seen every complication out there. He has learnt from best practice dentistry, evidence-based work, learning and listening to the industry gurus who he knows by name and continues to search for new solutions to his patients’ problems. What’s more, he’s heavily involved in mentoring and teaching programs for dental students across Australia. Education and patience have been at the core of his career from the start and form the very essence of Sensational Smiles Dental.

    All Consultations, X-rays and Scans:

    Your dentist will explain the implant process, including the surgical procedure and restorative work. They will address any questions or concerns you have about the treatment. This will help you understand your treatment options as well as any alternatives available. Your dentist can also provide an estimate of the total cost for each option so you can make an informed choice about how to proceed.
    Digital scans create a highly detailed 3D picture of your jawbone and teeth. This precise image enables your dentist to accurately identify any issues and recommend the best treatment plan. Scanning also lowers the risk of post-operative problems compared to traditional methods, by providing your dentist with detailed insights into your anatomy. This will give your dentist vital information for developing a personalised treatment plan.

    Smile Design:

    Your dentist will assess your individual needs and create a customised plan, an essential aspect of the All-on-4 dental implant procedure, to ensure accurate implant placement for the highest success rates, optimal positioning of the teeth for a beautiful aesthetic result, and the overall quality of your dental restoration.

    Optional Add ons from $5,000


    Titanium is an exceptionally strong yet lightweight metal, making it ideal for dental implant restorations. It can withstand extensive chewing forces over many years. 5-year guarantee on bridge and implants.


    Ceramic Zirconium teeth offer the ultimate in natural appearance and longevity. Their lifelike shade and translucency recreate the look of real teeth, while their durable ceramic construction withstands extensive chewing without fractures. It is also highly resistant to stains, ensuring teeth maintain their pristine whiteness for years of beautiful, confident smiles


    If the jawbone does not have enough density or volume to support 4 standard-sized implants, extra implants can help distribute forces better. Bone grafting is often required for dental implant procedures because the jawbone must have adequate density and volume to properly support and anchor the implant.

    Interest Free Payment Plans

    We understand that the implant treatment doesn't come without a high cost, which is why we do everything we can to help our patients to afford the investment in their smiles. We offer several interest free payment plans so that you’re able to have treatment straight away and then spread the cost into manageable payments.

    Accessing Your Superannuation to Pay Your Treatment

    We can even help you to use your superannuation against the cost of dental implant treatment and work in collaboration with Supercare to make the application process as simple as possible.
