When you look at your teeth, you are only seeing the outermost part of their anatomy, which is the enamel. If you could look inside your tooth, you would see that beneath the enamel is a layer of dentin, and then a soft pulp at the center of the tooth. When bacteria invade the dental pulp, it can cause an abscess that is painful and could result in a chip or crack in the tooth. When this happens, a root canal procedure can replace the infected pulp with a manmade material. At Ideal Endodontics, we offer endodontics, more commonly called root canals, for patients with and without insurance, so you can relieve the pain in your mouth and protect the future health of your teeth.
For patients without insurance, a necessary procedure like a root canal can seem daunting. Of course, the cost of a root canal will increase for patients who do not have appropriate dental insurance coverage. While the exact cost of your procedure will vary depending on the extent of your condition, where you choose to undergo your procedure, and a variety of other factors, researching some average cost projections for root canal procedures in the United States can help you make informed decisions regarding your treatment. For a front tooth, the cost without insurance could be just over $1,000, while someone with insurance might only pay $600. For a bicuspid, the cost could be about $1,000 or $300 with insurance coverage. A back molar root canal could cost more than $1,200 or about half as much as that with appropriate insurance coverage.
For patients with and without insurance, most dental practices can offer payment plans that will make root canal procedures more affordable. Endodontics is typically considered a necessary medical procedure, so patients with insurance coverage can expect a significant reduction in their total treatment cost over those without insurance. At Ideal Endodontics, we strive to offer our patients access to the important dental health services they need at a price that is affordable. If you have questions about the insurance policies we accept or would like to discuss a payment plan with one of our dedicated and knowledgeable staff members, please contact us today.
