Root Canal Costs

The cost of root canals

Root canals can often help save your teeth. Get the treatment you need at a price you can afford with your local care team by your side.

How much do root canals cost?

Prices starting at $900

Root canals can relieve pain and help prevent a tooth extraction. Regardless of the cause, prices vary based on where you need the root canal and what insurance coverage you have. 

What affects root canal pricing? 

Root canal location

The location of your root canal is the biggest cost indicator.  An anterior root canal located near the front of your mouth typically costs less than a molar root canal.

Tooth condition

If a root canal was previously performed on the affected tooth, or if the infection requires surgery, your cost could be impacted.

Dentist vs. specialist 

The cost of a root canal varies based on who is performing the extraction; specialists will have a higher fee service from general dentists.

¹Dental insurance providers accepted vary based on Aspen Dental location.

Yes. When a natural tooth is pulled but not replaced, the teeth around it may shift, making it more difficult to bite, chew or clean your teeth well, which can lead to gum disease. It’s important to get care as soon as you can because a root canal can help alleviate pain and prevent further issues down the road. Putting off a root canal can lead to more expensive dental procedures or tooth extractions later on.
