Cost of Dentistry
by Dr. Michael Popp on Nov 13, 2018

Are you planning on getting dental implants? To help you plan your yearly dentistry costs, here are 5 factors that could affect the price of your treatment.


Many provincial health insurance plans in Canada don’t provide coverage for routine dental checkups and oral treatments, which leads to very high dentistry costs. Due to this, many Canadians avoid the dentist until absolutely necessary, which can lead to painful and undesirable consequences, such as:

  • Tooth and bone loss
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Pain, discomfort, and difficulty following a healthy diet

Is the Cost of Dentistry Keeping You From Getting the Dental Treatment You Deserve?

5 Key Factors That Affect the Cost Of Your Dental Implants

Many adults lose one or several of their permanent teeth at some point in their lifetime. Tooth loss is more than just a cosmetic problem, such as gaps in your smile can lead to:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Shifting teeth
  • Bone loss
  • Decreased self esteem and quality of life  
  • Poor nutrition and overall health

If you are suffering from tooth loss, then dental implants are a great tooth replacement option. Dental implants are natural looking and can last a lifetime if well cared for. However, before you opt for a dental implant treatment, here are 5 factors that can affect the cost of your procedure:

  1. Number of replacements: Naturally, replacing several teeth will cost more than the restoration of a single tooth. Depending on the health of your teeth and gums, you may have to undergo these replacements simultaneously or at different times, which can also affect your dentistry costs.  

  2. Tooth location. Every patient deserves individualized care. Depending on your teeth, you may require slight adjustments in your treatment to achieve the best results, and to ensure your front teeth match the existing jawline and your smile looks great. Because of this, some situations require more advanced work, which can be more expensive.

  3. Bone density. In order for your dental implant treatment to be successful, you have to have enough jawbone to secure the titanium post. If you have low bone density, you may require a bone graft to prepare your mouth and ensure the most successful results.

  4. Extractions. If the tooth that needs replacing has not yet fallen out of your mouth, then you will need to have it extracted. An extraction is a separate dental procedure with its own associated costs.

  5. Overall oral health. If you are suffering from gum disease, or other oral health conditions, then it’s likely you’ll need other initial treatments to ensure your mouth is healthy for the best possible outcome of your implantation procedure.

How Dental Insurance Can Help You Get The Best Treatment

Dental insurance is an excellent way to lower your cost of dentistry, and make it easier for you to receive the best treatments. If you are considering investing in dental insurance for times when you require procedures such as dental implants, here are some tips for maximizing your coverage:

  • Get coverage for your entire family. By covering everyone, you’ll save more money in the long run.
  • Take advantage of the free preventative coverage. Early detection of oral problems can prevent the need for invasive and expensive treatments later on.
  • If you have children, ensure the plan covers orthodontic treatment.
  • Be sure that the dentist you visit participates in the selection of your plan.
