What does a Root Canal Cost?
Root Canals an extremely common procedure; unfortunately that does not mean they are inexpensive.
In America Root Canal Costs can range from $800.00 to $1,500.00; additionally normally you will also need a crown which generally doubles the price bringing the total to about $1,600.00 to $3,000.00 per tooth.
Can’t I just Get Dental Insurance to Pay for the Root Canal?
Unfortunately, if you don’t already have Dental Insurance – you probably will not be able to get an insurance company to pay for your root canal anytime soon, because of normal exclusions and waiting periods that are common in Policies.
But let’s take a look at Insurance.
If you do have insurance you may find that you are still in for a large dental bill.
Most Insurance Companies sell what is known as ”100-80-50″ coverage. What this means 100% is covered on all preventative and diagnostic dental care; 80% for fillings, root canals, and other basic procedures; and 50% for bridges, crowns, and major procedures.
A long story short, once you factor in all the deductibles, maximum coverages, exclusions, etc. You could very well still be paying about 70% of the total bill.
