The cost depends on the complexity of the issue with your tooth and which tooth is affected. Factors that might affect cost:
- The number of roots and canals in the tooth, and the presence of calcification in the root canal space.
- The position of the tooth in the mouth- as molars are more difficult to treat, the procedure is often more expensive.
Usually, it's cheaper to have endodontic treatment and restoration done on the tooth than the alternative of removing the tooth altogether. The extracted tooth has to be replaced with a bridge or an implant to restore full function for chewing and to prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth. Procedures involved in tooth removal tend to cost more than endodontic treatment and the consequent restoration. Endodontic treatment saves both your natural teeth and your money.
Most dental insurance policies provide some coverage for endodontic treatment.
We will discuss an estimate with you before your treatment. Payment is due upon completion of your procedure.
