TERMS & CONDITIONS

All information provided in any form by our staff and representatives, or displayed in our advertisements, including (without limitation) references to procedures, results of treatment, timing of treatment and estimates of costs, is non-specific and always subject to a comprehensive oral examination by a dentist, a diagnostic work-up, radiographic examination, and assessment by a medical practitioner or specialist, as may be required, and at an associated cost and timeframe. Treatment possibilities and results will vary from patient to patient.


The 'Disclaimer' section in its entirety (including all subsections) forms a part of these conditions and should be read entirely before relying on any information provided or making any decision. Any further questions should be directed by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Reference to Finance or Payment Plans


Any finance options or payment plans are subject to a credit check and approval by this clinic and/or other third parties. Responsibility for all outstanding fees remains with the patient or legal guardian at all times.


Reference to 'Computer Guided Dental Implants' and 'All-On-4'


These procedures may not be suitable for all patients and are subject to selection criteria. The diagnostic measures to assess a patient's suitability are always at an additional cost.


Typical surgical risks, whilst better measured with this 'computer-guided' approach, apply nevertheless, and patients are encouraged to read the entire disclosure statement and risks contained in the relevant consent document.


'Nobel Guide' is a registered trademark of Nobel Biocare and has been used in this site with permission from Nobel Biocare Australia.


Reference to 'Teeth in an Hour', 'Immediate Teeth', or 'Teeth in 3 Days'


Not all patients who are suitable for the Computer Guided Dental Implants surgical procedure or the All-On-4 procedure will also be suitable for immediate teeth to be fitted at the same time as the surgery. Additionally, patients who are planned for immediate teeth cannot be guaranteed that these will, in fact, be fitted at the same time as the surgery.


Where the replacement teeth are inserted at the same time as the implant surgery, the diet should be amended to softer non-challenging foods for 12 weeks (dietary supplements may be required). It should also be noted that following implant treatment the function is improved with resultant improvements in muscle tone. Immediate replacement teeth are constructed from very strong high-impact acrylic and in certain case, such as in heavy grinders, the improved muscle tone may be too excessive for that material, and a titanium reinforcement bar may be required. For this reason, whilst appearing like the permanent teeth, the immediate replacement teeth should be regarded as Long Term Provisional teeth (approx. 1-8 Years) and may need to be re-made with titanium substructure at an additional cost.


Reference to 'Sedation & Sleep Dentistry'


Sedation may not be suitable or available for all patients who request it. Suitability is subject to a health assessment by the visiting specialist anaesthetist who administers the anaesthetic.


Anaesthetic prrocedures are subject to additional fees, a proportion of which may be claimed through Medicare. There are separate risks associated with the administration of IV Sedation and there is often a limited availability of sessions. As such, there may be some delays in providing the necessary treatment under IV sedation. This may impact on a patient's general or dental health and in this regard other anaesthetic options may be explored. Ensuring our patients safety and comfort is our priority.
