TREATMENTS AND PRICING:

Below is a basic list of treatments offered at Fermoy Dental Centre. There are many more treatments available and indeed many treatments are varied in procedure, length and materials used. As such, prices quoted serve to act as a guide only and on request you will be given an exact quotation before any treatment is carried out.


Examination / Consultation

A routine check up of the full mouth and jaws, including all soft tissues etc, screening for decay, gum disease, oral pathology, jaw function and discussion of oral health and any other issues the patient may have.

Cost €30

Hygiene treatment

A 30-minute treatment session with our hygienist with attention to plaque and tartar deposits, which drive the gum disease process. Staining is removed where possible and a discussion of home hygiene treatment / care is given also.

Cost €50

Fillings

With or without local anaesthetic, small/medium/large fillings in a range of materials, most of which are in tooth-coloured composite. A second or third filling at one appointment will be done at a discounted rate (15-20%)

Cost €50-€100

Extractions

From straightforward extractions done under local anaesthetic, to surgical extractions requiring bone removal and/or sutures. Aftercare such as dry socket treatment included. Impacted wisdom teeth generally referred to an Oral Surgeon.

Cost €65-€100

Root Canal treatment

Where a tooth is causing pain (either an excited nerve or an infection) or where the centre of the tooth is required for placement of a post to retain a crown, the dentist may offer to perform a root canal treatment (endodontics). Front teeth usually have one canal, premolars two and molars three or even four canals. Sometimes it's possible to do the treatment at one visit, sometimes it may take two or even three visits. All these factors affect the cost. A routine filling will be necessary afterwards, but sometimes the dentist may advise you to have the tooth crowned.

Cost €200-€450

Crowns

Where a tooth is too broken down to have a filling done the dentist may advise crowning of the tooth. This involves shaping the existing tooth to accept a full coverage, precision-made piece which encases the remainder of the tooth. These can be made of various materials and can be tooth coloured, silver or gold. A front tooth will require additional attention to detail by the ceramacist to get a flawless natural appearance.

Cost€220-€700

Veneers

A facing, much like a fake-nail, placed over the visible surface of the tooth to improve the appearance of the tooth and possibly to replace existing fillings on the tooth. Usually requires a little shaping of the existing tooth first. Best done in pairs and a discount is applied in this case.

Cost €350-€450.

Implants

The latest in dental treatment when it comes to replaing a misisng tooth / teeth or to act as a retainer for dentures. The implant is a titanium piece which is placed surgically in the jaw bone. Once the bone has grown around it (3-4 months) it can act to hold a crown, a bridge or a denture in place. Read more>>

Single tooth implant cost €1750

Dentures

A removable solution for replacing missing teeth, a denture may have one tooth or all the teeth on the base. They can be made with a metal frame, which allows for less bulk, or from acrylic.

Cost €350-€750

Bridges

When a tooth (or teeth) has failed and has to be extracted, or where a tooth is already missing, a replacement tooth (or teeth) may be possible by using a neighbouring tooth (or neighbours either side of the space) for support for the replacement tooth / teeth. "Sticky" bridges need little shaping of the neighbours but in many circumstances may not be reliable depending on the forces involved. "Conventional" bridges require major shaping of the neighbour(s), much like a crown preparation and are more reliable in most circumstances. Many factors dictate the price of a bridge.

Cost from €500

Tooth Whitening

Take home kits which act over 7-10 days, usually worn at night or in-chair (Zoom) treatment (1 hour) both which can achieve impressive results.

Cost €150 (single arch)-€220(both)-€300. €400 Zoom.
