We understand that the referral process can be somewhat complicated, and patients may not fully understand why they need to see a periodontist or what to expect.
To that end, we have an online booking system that enables you to directly visualise our appointment book and make appointments for patients. You can book an appointment at www.proactiveperio.com.
To better prepare patients, we are detailing a price range for various procedures. Please understand that this is for guidance purposes only and that every case is different. We will always provide a full and detailed quote for therapy at the end of a consultation.
|New Patient Consultation||$290|
|Periodontal/Peri-implant Therapy||$400 – $5500|
|Implant Placement||$2100 – $3500 per implant|
|Staged Grafting||$1500 – $3500|
|Periodontal Surgery||$300 – $2000|
|Mucogingival Surgery||$250 – $1000 per tooth|
New Patient Consultations
Our initial consultations are $290 and involve a 40-minute appointment with one of our periodontists. The price includes consultation fees, any x-rays required, and periodontal charting. The patient will have the opportunity to discuss their diagnosis and treatment plan in length with the periodontist who will be performing their treatment.
The fees involved with periodontal and peri-implant therapy will vary widely depending on the patient’s needs. It may involve localised or full mouth treatment, and requirements for treatment vary depending on the severity of disease. Our treatment options include (but are not limited to): active periodontal therapy, periodontal flap surgery, and LANAP. All of the patient’s options will be disclosed to them at their initial consultations, including any costs involved with treatment. We always endeavour to work in partnership with the patient to determine which treatment will be most suitable for their current situation.
For implant therapy, the price varies from $2100 for a straightforward, simple implant, up to $3500 for complex two-stage implants involving simultaneous grafting. When referring patients to us for implants, please let us know if you have a preferred implant system and we will do everything we can to accommodate this.
Stage grafting can vary from $1500 for a simple case, through to $3500 for treatment requiring a sinus lift. The price will depend heavily on the number of materials and time required to complete the procedure.
Periodontal surgery for such items as crown lengthening access surgery for exposures will vary from $300 through to $2000, depending once again on the procedure complexity and materials required.
With regards to mucogingival surgery, prices vary anywhere from $250 through to $1000 per tooth. The cost primarily depends on the number of teeth being grafted to re-establish soft tissue contouring and whether we are using connective tissue or other alternative products.
We understand that this is quite a wide price range; however, as you can appreciate, every patient is an individual. We hope this helps, but if you do have specific requests and you can provide more details regarding the case, please free to contact our reception and they will do their best to provide you with a narrower estimate.
