An endodontic treatment will vary in cost from one patient to the next. Your final endodontic treatment cost in Los Angeles will be affected by the location of the tooth being treated, the complexity of the case, and the type of treatment that will be required.
1. The location of the tooth
Teeth that are easier to reach or that have fewer root canals, such as incisors and canines, will generally cost less than bicuspids, premolars, and molars.
2. The complexity of treatment
Some types of endodontic treatment are more complex than other types of endodontic treatment. Endodontic surgery may cost more than a simple root canal treatment.
3. The type of restoration
Permanent fillings can be used to restore some treated teeth, but crowns are generally recommended after root canal therapy. Crowns serve to strengthen and protect the treated tooth.
The cost of endodontic treatment will generally include the cost of the appointments, dental X-rays, images, and anesthetic. The temporary restoration may also be covered in the initial cost. Dental insurance will usually cover a portion of the cost for endodontic treatment, but may cover it at a lower rate than preventive treatments or simple restorations.
