Are root canals expensive?

Root canal moneyThey sure are, and you probably knew that already. But think for a moment, isn’t spending a few hundred dollars worth saving a tooth?

Usually if you have dental infection or inflammation and you chose not to proceed with a root canal, the other alternative is to extract your tooth. The ideal treatment to replace a missing tooth is a dental implant and it’s much more costly than a root canal.

How much does a root canal really costs? This depends of many factors. Firstly each country their own prices. Also a tooth can have many canals and many roots, each canal having to be treated, the more canals, the more expensive it is. Moreover, an endodontist, which is a dentist that has specialised in root canals, has higher rates than a general dentist.
