Patient Comments: Root Canal - Cost

How much did your root canal cost? Did insurance cover your procedure?

Comment from: john, Male (Patient) Published: June 02

My root canal cost $ 800.00 and insurance covered 54% or $ 432.00, I paid the rest. It is noteworthy to add that this tooth had one canal.

Unfortunately, dental insurance goes up to $2,000. Which is pretty much one procedure. After that, it"s all on you. I just found this out because I needed a root canal. Now a week later I have to have another root canal, different tooth. So two root canals and two crowns... I will end up with $4,000 worth of dental work and in debt! Lovely!
