The Cost of a Smile

Canadians are not unfamiliar with dental hygiene, given that just over one-third brush their teeth twice a day, and floss at least once a day. While this is certainly a very important aspect of oral care, a visit to the dentist is also very important.

  3. The Cost of a Smile Canadians are not unfamiliar with

    dental hygiene, given that just over one-third brush their teeth twice a day, and floss at least once a day. While this is certainly a very important aspect of oral care, a visit to the dentist is also very important. About 75% of Canadians saw a dentist in 2019, while about 22% did not, citing cost as the main reason.
  4. Even with the abundance of oral care, due to age,

    genetics, or accidents, people find themselves needing to replace some or all the teeth in their mouth. Whether it is to be able to eat solid foods or to retain their familiar look, there are many dental professionals offering their services to help people with these problems.
  5. As dentures have been around since about the 7th century

    B.C.E. humans have had plenty of time to tweak and adjust the technology. Today dental procedures and fittings for dentures are incredibly routine and safe. There are plenty of denture and dentist clinics throughout Canada and many offer superb service and quality.
  6. Whether looking for something basic or something top of the

    line and custom made, dentures come in all shapes and sizes. Just a couple missing teeth or an entire mouthful, denture clinics are here to help. One quick search engine adventure and one can find exactly what they are looking for.
  7. Around Canada many people are on the search for dental

    care that is both affordable and of high quality. As people get older the need for dentures and other procedures become more necessary, and often people want to get the service and quality that would make them smile once again. Due to the wide range of solutions associated with dental work, there is a wide range of prices and treatments as well.
  8. In Toronto, on average, a complete set of dentures costs

    between $1,279 and $2,950. While this is certainly not the only option, it really depends what sort of dental appliance one is seeking. For example, if someone has only lost a single tooth, they may only need one implant. Perhaps a person only needs upper dentures, or lower dentures. The price can range significantly between how much work is needed, and the quality and service associated with it.
  9. While a complete set of dentures is what many people

    associate with “traditional dentures”, there are also immediate dentures, partial dentures, implant retained, and more. All of these have different cost breakdowns, on average as follows:
  10. Immediate dentures These are used in a situation where some

    of the original teeth are retained and the dentures are created around them. This can range on average from $1,495 to $3,270. While this is more of a challenge than traditional dentures, it does allow the patient to retain their front teeth, thus retaining their original smile and overall appearance. Due to the greater challenge the price tag is obviously a little bit higher than traditional dentures, which replace all the existing teeth.
  11. Partial dentures In this situation, dentures can be made to

    fill some gaps while retaining many of the original teeth. This can be done if someone had a few teeth knocked out during a particularly physical hockey match or some other equally jarring accident.
  12. Given that these can come in all shapes, sizes, and

    formations, the price tag on these can range on average anywhere between $300 to $5,000 for a single plate, and $600 to $10,000 for a full set. These require a great amount of customization compared to conventional dentures, and it is quite apparent in the price tag the amount of work that goes into this style of device.
  13. Implant-Retained dentures These dentures involve a surgery in which hardware

    is installed directly into the jawbone, and on top of these securing’s are attached dentures that are not made to be removed. This is the most expensive option with a top to bottom cost on average between $3,500 to $30,000, and for a full set between $7,000 and $90,000, with the average around $34,000.
  14. While these are some of the major options when it

    comes to oral maintenance and tooth replacement, there are many other factors that can affect the cost of dentures and other oral-related surgeries. This list can include tooth extractions, alveoloplasty (reshaping the jawbone), insurance coverage, lab fees, dentist fees, and many more.
  15. These fees can add up and should be considered when

    shopping for a solution to smile at. Fortunately, in Canada about two thirds of the population has some form of dental insurance, and only about one in five does not see a dentist annually due to cost related issues. Overall Canada has a good reputation for utilizing dental insurance to visit dentists and other oral-professionals, which can help lessen the need for dentures and surgeries, but even still, there are many options on the table for what people need.
