What is a Root Canal?
Did you know that approximately 14 million people undergo root canal therapy each and every year. In fact, root canals are one of the most common types of dental treatments performed in the world. That being said, many people today still put off necessary root canal treatment due to fear of discomfort, finances, or anxiety. The truth of the matter is that the discomfort you experience from a diseased or damaged tooth is much worse than anything you may experience at our dental office. In fact, at Precision Endodontics, our promise to our patients is that we will ensure your root canal is performed with little to no discomfort. It should actually be a rather boring procedure (other than the awesome dental therapy dog we provide, and custom music our patients choose in each operatory).
How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?
One of the biggest concerns patients have – besides the pain of the actual root canal procedure itself – is the cost. When considering the cost of a root canal, it’s really tough to give exact fees up front. First, we need to make a diagnosis and determine which tooth is affected – whether it’s an anterior or a posterior tooth. We also consider whether your tooth has had a previous root canal. Are we redoing something, or are we performing a surgery? Fees fluctuate based on a range and depend on the specifics of your case. Generally, the cost of retaining and saving your tooth is less than the cost of extracting and replacing it with an implant or bridge. If we can help you in any matter, please let us know.

Do I Have Root Canal Insurance Coverage?
A lot of patients will ask about root canal insurance coverage through their dental insurance. At Precision Endodontics, we participate in several major dental insurance plans. People are often surprised to find out that most dental insurances will cover at least a portion of the dental procedure, and some even cover 100%. The extent of your root canal insurance coverage is based on your employer and your specific dental insurance plan. Our friendly office staff and treatment coordinator will work with you and submit all the necessary paperwork for you to help make everything easier. We can even give you a pre-estimate so you can have a clear picture of your potential out-of-pocket cost prior to any work being performed. At Precision Endodontics, we pride ourselves on providing a comfortable, pain-free experience, and that also includes providing you with peace of mind and full transparency on the costs associated with treatment.
