At Aspen Dental, we’re committed to making dental care easy. We offer a wide variety of treatments all under one roof, including root canals.
Root canals can be daunting at first, but the root canal is an important procedure to help mitigate pain and save teeth. There are countless reasons someone may need a root canal, in spite of their best brushing and flossing efforts. Root canals may be necessary for teeth with deep decay, decay beneath crowns involving the nerve, or repeated dental procedures on a select, chipped or cracked tooth.
The purpose of a root canal is to preserve as much of an injured or diseased tooth as possible. In the early days of dentistry, injured or diseased teeth would simply be pulled. Now, every effort is made to save your natural teeth—and this is where a root canal comes in.
A root canal can relieve pain, help save your tooth, and get you back to smiling and eating again. However, costs of root canals can vary based on the location and condition of the affected tooth and whether or not a crown is needed.
You may have a lot of questions when you find out you need a root canal. And that’s OK. Your Aspen Dental team can help you understand your options. There are a number of factors to consider when you’re researching root canal costs. Saving your natural teeth is usually your dentist’s first plan of action, because natural teeth are often better at biting and chewing than replacement teeth like dentures or bridges. When a natural tooth is pulled but not replaced, the teeth around it may shift, making it more difficult to bite, chew, and to clean your teeth well, which can lead to gum disease. So, it’s important to get treatment as soon as you can. Putting off a root canal can lead to more expensive dental procedures down the road or even the permanent loss of your tooth. Aside from your treatment and dental care needs, consider the following cost factors:
Whether or not you have insurance
Whether you pay out-of-pocket
Whether you have other financing considerations
