It depends on how many teeth your Maltese needed extraction. Cost could add up. My dog, a 95 pounder, had to pull his 4th pre-molar before X'mas. The bill was $1,600. $250 of it was cleaning. The rest of the bill are cost of X-rays, 2 hr+ of anesthetics, extraction & painkiller etc. (My dentist told me he can get a specialist for the same procedure on me at half the cost.)
My suggestion is to shop around a bit. I read on the internet that some vet in the states would do a root canel for $300. I'm sure you can get a more reasonable quote if you check around. Good luck for your search!
