Endodontic and Root Canal Cost
A Breakdown of Our Fees
A Breakdown of Our Fees
We make our billing and payment process simple for your convenience. For our root canal procedures, we include the following services in our fees:
- X-ray imaging (2D intraoral)
- Diagnostic testing
- Diagnostic findings review with the doctor
- Needed dental procedure, root canal procedure, or endodontic treatment
- Temporary filling for your tooth crown prior to returning to your general dentist
- Necessary local anesthesia and oral medications
- Possible follow-up appointments
The cost varies depending on complexity and which tooth type is affected (e.g. molar, premolar or incisor/canine). Most dental benefit plans provide some coverage for endodontic treatment. Select services will incur additional fees. Examples include advanced sedation services, 3D cone-beam CT (CBCT) imaging, or if your general dentist requests we place a restorative filling in your crown at the time of root canal treatment. Also, please note that any permanent tooth filling or restoration (core build up, crown, crown repair, etc.) required after endodontic therapy will be completed at the dental office of your general dentist and is not included in our fees.
We assure you, before performing root canals or beginning any endodontic treatment, we always take time to discuss your case in detail and answer any financial questions you may have.
We ask for payment in full on the day of your treatment and accept cash, personal checks, major credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover), and the CareCredit healthcare credit card.
However, we know that even with these options, budgetary concerns can still stand in the way of seeking treatment and the oral health care you need. That’s why we have team members dedicated to helping you navigate billing, payment, financing, and insurance.
We want you to fully understand the cost of a root canal and be advised of all payment options available. Please contact our office to speak directly with our team prior to your endodontic treatment to ask questions and arrange an affordable dental payment plan.
What Do My Dental Benefits Cover?
We accept several major dental benefit plans and can help submit your claim to maximize your benefits.
While offering some financial assistance, rarely do dental benefit plans cover the entire fee for endodontic treatment. Contact your dental plan to review your dental plan benefits, including yearly maximums, deductibles, and in-network and out-of-network benefits.
Our team will submit charges to your dental plan on your behalf and accept payment directly from them.
We ask patients to pay an estimated percentage plus deductible (if applicable) on the day services are rendered. Once we receive a response and/or payment from your dental plan, we will promptly refund or bill any balance to you. While the dental plans we accept are subject to change, we are currently in-network providers for the following dental plans:
- Aetna PPO and Aetna DHMO
- Assurant Dental Health Alliance
- Cigna DMO and Cigna PPO
- Delta Dental Premier
- Guardian/DentalGuard Network
Excellence in customer service is always our goal. If you have other questions about how our office will handle or process your dental benefits plan, please don’t hesitate to contact us to speak directly to a financial coordinator.
