The cost varies depending on how complex the problem is and which tooth is affected. Molars are more difficult to treat; the fee is usually more. Most dental insurance policies provide some coverage for endodontic treatment.
Generally, endodontic treatment and restoration of the natural tooth are less expensive than the alternative of having the tooth extracted. An extracted tooth must be replaced with an implant or bridge to restore chewing function and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting. These procedures tend to cost more than endodontic treatment and appropriate restoration.
Payment in full is expected at the time services are rendered. Payment may be made by cash, personal check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or Care Credit.
As a courtesy to you, insurance forms will be completed and filed for you without charge. We are happy to help you receive the maximum benefits; however, the agreement of the insurance to pay for your dental care is a contract between you and your insurance company. Insurance companies may reimburse at a lower rate than we estimate. When this occurs, you may be required to pay an additional “after-insurance” balance.
