A fair price for a molar root canal in the United States is approximately $900 as of 2015, though it is largely dependent upon the cost of living in the area and the dentist's credentials.
Prices for dental procedures vary by location due to cost of living differences. According to OkCopay.com, $900 is the median price for a molar root canal in the United States for uninsured patients. However, prices have been found as low as $210 and as high as $2,250 in different locations.
Root canal specialists, called endodontists, often charge higher prices due to their specialty education and training, while general dentists in dental clinics likely charge less.
For patients with dental insurance, the insurance company and the dental provider should have an agreed-upon price for all covered dental procedures, including a molar root canal. This price varies among both insurance companies and dental providers.
