Dental insurance effect on the cost

Whether or not your insurance will cover your root canal procedure will depend on your particular plan, but it is common for dental insurance plans to cover 50% – 80% of the cost of a root canal after the deductible has been met. Thus, the cost listed above can be 50-80% LOWER. 

When you talk to a dental office, it is important to find out whether they accept your insurance and are in-network, because it can significantly affect how much the insurance pay, thus lowering your cost if you do find one that accepts your insurance.

Type of dental office

At the dental office of a root canal specialist (an endodontist) vs a well trained general dentist, the cost is typically higher by 25-50% at the specialist office.
