How Much Does Root Canal Treatment Cost?
At The Perfect Smile, we design our treatments solely for you. Because of this, our Root Canal treatment cost is dependent on a number of important factors:
- The tooth being treated
- The number of root canals present
- The shape and complexity of canals
- The time it takes to complete the root filling
At the assessment stage, your dentist can give you an estimate for the treatment fee based upon a review of the X-ray of the tooth. However, the difficulty of the treatment is only truly known once the treatment is undertaken.
There will be a further cost for the restoration needed to build up the tooth after the Root Canal Treatment. This will depend on whether a reinforcing post is used, and the other materials used.
Our recommendation is to use a fibre-post bonded into the root canal, followed by a white filling which bonds to the post and your tooth.
Occasionally, a metal post that is precision made in the laboratory may be indicated. A crown is ultimately necessary to protect the tooth for the long term.
