The cost of teeth cleaning, according to the Ontario Dental Association 2023 Fee Guide, is as follows:
- 1 unit of scaling $69
- 2 units of scaling $134
- 3 units of scaling $192
Each unit of scaling equals 15 minutes of teeth cleaning.
Most adults will need two to three units, and kids will need about one to two units of scaling, depending on their oral hygiene status.
The dental hygienist will do an assessment and let you know how many units of scaling you will need.
Each person is different, and only a hygienist or dentist can tell you how many scaling units you need to clean your teeth and get back to healthy conditions.
Most dental insurance will cover the cost of teeth cleaning.
Polish and Fluoride are extra and sometimes not covered by insurance but recommended to keep your teeth strong and healthy.
- 1/2 unit of polish $28
- Fluoride Treatment $35
