How Much Does Root Canal Cost?

26 September 2019

There's a number of reasons why you may need root canal treatment. After establishing the need for for this treatment, the next question is typically 'how does root canal treatment cost?'.

At 3Dental, prices range from €400 to €650 for all classic root canal treatments. Dr. Niall Vallely

Let's look at some of the more frequently asked questions around the cost of root canal treatment.

How much does it cost for a root canal and crown without insurance?

The anatomy of the nerves to be removed varies greatly from one tooth to another, therefore the time needed to complete the procedure can be longer on a more complex tooth, then increasing the costs.

Typically, a front tooth with a single canal will cost less than a molar with 3, 4 or more canals to be treated.

In the case of a previously treated tooth, or when a tooth requires another specific endodontic procedure, the price may vary, and these special cases need to be assessed by an endodontist so all necessary information can be given to you prior to the treatment.

Can a root canal be covered by medical insurance?

Most private medical insurances cover root canal treatments, although the type of coverage depends entirely on the company and the plan you have subscribed to. 

If you are unsure about the coverage policy of your own medical insurance, our team of treatment coordinators and receptionists can get in touch with your insurer to find out about your level of coverage and prepare your custom fitted treatment and payment plans.

How long does root canal last?

The lifespan of root canal treated teeth  depends on the care you give them, as they can fail just the same as a healthy set of teeth.

With strong restoration and good oral hygiene, a root canal treatment can preserve the tooth and the bone surrounding it for many years, if not for a lifetime.
