Fees & Payment Plan

Periodontal Treatment

Treatment of gum disease usually begins with non–surgical deep cleaning commonly referred to as Scaling and Root-Planing. Fees are based on initial disease presentation of and for most people this would range between $650-$1,800.

Following initial non-surgical treatment you may require surgical therapy to treat any unresolved areas of your mouth. This would normally range between $700- $2,500.

Once your gum disease is under control our hygienists will see you periodically to help you maintain periodontal health. This is referred to as Maintenance Therapy. The cost of these sessions would be approximately $192, and dependent on your disease profile and your ability to clean adequately. These visits would normally be 3-9 monthly.

Implant Treatment

Missing teeth can be replaced by a number of treatment modalities. One of these is the use of dental implants. Dental implant treatment involves the surgical placement of a titanium implant followed by a period of healing. After this time you will be sent back to your referring dentist who will complete the treatment by constructing and fitting the required restoration. Bone grafting may sometimes be required before the implant can be placed, often depending on the length of time that the tooth or teeth have been missing. When the bone loss isn‘t so severe, it is sometimes possible to graft at the time of implant placement.

On occasion there will also be insufficient bone height when placing an implant to replace an upper back tooth and a sinus lift will be required at a cost of $1,600 (including grafting materials). This can sometimes be carried out simultaneously with implant placement.

Other Surgical Procedures

Sometimes your Periodontist or referring dentist will recommend other surgical procedures. This may be to assist your dentist to place a crown (cap) or bridge by exposing more of your remaining tooth structure – this is called Functional Crown lengthening. Some people may present with a “Gummy Smile”, and these patients can benefit from Aesthetic Crown Lengthening to produce a more aesthetic result.

Sometimes the gum has receded on a tooth or teeth in the front of your mouth and its obvious when you smile. This will normally have occurred from over zealous toothbrushing. Grafting procedures can be carried out to restore the missing gum and therefore produce a more pleasing result.

Please refer down the page for an estimate of costs for these procedures. A more accurate cost can be given after consultation. If you are unable to meet the cost of a procedure please speak to Karen Newcombe our Practice Manager, who may be able to work out a payment plan that suits.
