How Much Do Dentures in Ottawa Cost?
Among the questions we are asked here at our Ottawa denture clinic, one of the more common ones is, “How much do dentures cost?”
That’s a great and perfectly reasonable question to ask. After all, dentures represent a milestone in life, and they are not a small-ticket item but rather an investment in one’s oral health.
At Ottawa South Denture Clinic, we price all dentures according to the fee guide as set forth by the Denturist Association of Ontario. We do not charge more than the recommended fee.
In this article we will cover the various types of denture products and procedures, and their associated costs here at Ottawa South Denture Clinic.
The Cost of Dentures in Ottawa
Let’s start with the cost of dentures themselves. These fall into a series of categories. The cost range shown represents the lower end, starting price and goes upward to the high end, depending on a number of factors. The costs listed in this article are current as of the date of publishing: August 24, 2020.
Some insurance plans cover dentures; since this is determined by your carrier, we are not listing an ‘out-of-pocket cost’ in this article as it will vary by insurance provider and by plan. Contact your insurance provider for more information on coverage for dentures, denture repair and other denture services.
Standard Dentures cost between $1100 per denture and go up to $2600 for a set.
Precision Dentures start at $1400 and go up to $3000.
SEMCD or Suction Complete Dentures start from approximately $3700 for a set of upper and lower dentures.
For those seeking Partial Dentures, the options are twofold:
- Acrylic Partial Dentures: $550 ~ $1,000
- Cast Partial Dentures start at $1,200 for single denture
Implant Removable Dentures are another popular item. These can vary in price depending on the amount of implants needed.
- The cost of single denture may vary from $2,800 for a single denture on 2 implants
- And can run up to $8,000-$10,000 for a denture on 4 implants with custom milled bar or custom milled abutments
Prices for implant dentures do not include implant surgery that is usually provided by a dentist placing the implants.
Fixed Implant Dentures are non-removable dentures; depending on the number of implants and system used, these vary from $12,000 to $15,000.
Cost of Denture Repair in Ottawa
In addition to offering new dentures, the Ottawa South Denture Clinic also offers ancillary denture services.
One of our more common services is Denture Repairs. The cost of repairs starts at $100 without impressions, or from $160 with impressions.
Denture Relining is another denture service that occurs from time to time across your denture journey. Relines start at $300 per denture.
Tissue Conditioner is another service we perform, and it starts from $70 per denture and is usually included with services like Immediate dentures.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures in Ottawa
No two sets of dentures are exactly alike, so knowing the average price in Ottawa won’t necessarily tell you how much you’ll pay for yours. However, there are a few key factors we can look at that can help you predict things that will affect your cost:
Do you need one, or many teeth replaced?
Starting at the base factor, how many teeth need to be replaced? Generally, the more teeth that need to be replaced in your mouth, the more expensive the dentures will be. A single tooth replacement with a partial denture would cost much less than the average full set of dentures in Ottawa.
How will your Dentures be placed?
There are significant differences in how dentures are installed in your mouth, and not every set is the same. Most partial dentures are held in place by simple clasps that connect to nearby teeth. In more extensive cases, some dental work is needed before the dentures can be inserted in your mouth, and in some cases the dentures may need to be refitted as your jaw adjusts to the fitting. While this process is necessary for creating a comfortable fit, the extra labour can result in an increased overall cost.
What Will Your Dentures Be Made Of?
Most dentures are made from an acrylic resin. The teeth used on the denture can be made out of acrylic or a similar material (Acrylic and porcelains).
Are My Dentures Covered by Insurance?
Not all insurance plans cover dentures, so you should make sure to check what is and isn’t covered by your insurance carrier. Your denturist should also be able to help you find out if you qualify for coverage.
