Some patients want to know the average dental costs in Ontario. Prices are still a contributing factor whether a patient books a dental appointment or not. So, here is a list of the common dental procedures in Ontario and how much they cost on average.
Dental treatments differ, and you need to categorize them to know how much they are.
General dentistry aims to manage a patient’s overall oral care needs. It includes fillings, gum care, and root canal. Dental fillings are a dental restoration used to fill gaps in a tooth and can range from C$50 to C$350. Treatments like gum disease treatment and a root canal may range from C$200 to C$1,000 per tooth.
Preventative dentistry is any dentistry that aims to stop dental problems in the future. For example, teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments and oral exams aim to prevent plaque build-up and, therefore, tartar and cavities from forming. It can cost as little as C$25 per cleaning.
Crowns are a type of dental restoration cap placed over an existing tooth. They are typically made out of porcelain or ceramic. They can be used when a tooth is broken or has a damaged root. Crowns can cost between C$250 and C$1,000.
Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration that is used to bridge between one or more teeth. They are typically fixed and are made from porcelain, ceramic or plastic. They generally are used when teeth are missing or knocked out. They can be expensive, costing between C$500 and C$2,000.
Dental Implants are a type of dental restoration that replaces a tooth root. They are usually placed by an oral surgeon and involve an implant inserted into the jawbone. Once the implant has healed, a tooth crown can be fixed onto the implant. Implants can be expensive, costing between C$1,000 and C$5,000.
Braces are a type of orthodontic device worn by a person over some time to achieve the desired shape. Braces are usually worn for several months, and removal is not required. Braces can be expensive, costing between C$1,000 and C$5,000.
Invisalign is an orthodontic device worn through a person’s teeth rather than attached to them. They are popular with adults and older teens due to being much less noticeable than traditional braces. Invisalign can be more expensive, costing between C$3,000 and C$10,000.
Dentures are a type of orthodontic device worn by a person to replace missing teeth. Dentures can be made of acrylic, porcelain or metal. Dentures can cost between C$650 and C$3,000.
