Are you experiencing tooth pain? Learn about the cost of a root canal and how it can help relieve your pain.
If you are dealing with an infected tooth, it can be extremely painful. When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, which occurs when bacteria has penetrated both the sturdy enamel and the softer dentin, the outer and middle layers of the tooth, you may require root canal therapy to help repair your tooth. Decay from a lack of brushing and flossing can allow bacteria to infect the pulp, but cracking and chipping due to injuries can also provide an opportunity. Once the pulp is infected, the only way to save the tooth is through root canal therapy, a procedure that has a high success rate and can preserve your smile. Of course with the COVID-19 pandemic and many people unable to work, finances are a big consideration. The cost of a root canal should never be a determining factor in getting the treatment you need. At our office, we make root canal therapy affordable, and even provide flexible financing options to fit any budget. Keep reading to learn more.
If you want to save an injured or decayed tooth, root canal treatment may be your best bet. Back in the day, if you had an injured, cracked or decayed tooth, the go-to treatment would be pulling the tooth. However, now we try to make every possible effort to ensure we can preserve your natural teeth. This is where root canal treatment comes in. A root canal can relieve your pain, save your tooth, and get you back to full function again. However, the cost of a root canal can be daunting. The good news is that dental insurance may cover part or all of your root canal therapy. We accept a wide variety of dental insurances and even work with third party financing companies to help our patients get the necessary treatment they need without having to worry about the up-front cost of a root canal.
If you’ve already undergone root canal treatment in the past, and had an unsuccessful result, we can also help with that. Root canal retreatment can help repair an infection in a tooth that has already undergone root canal therapy. The cost of a root canal retreatment can be a little more expensive, but again we work with our patients to make dental care affordable no matter their budgets.
