Additional costs include pulp vitality testing, pulp capping and crowning. After a root canal procedure, the tooth is typically capped with a dental crown, which can cost between $300 and $3,000. Dental insurance generally covers part of the costs.
A root canal is performed on front teeth, bicuspids (premolars) or molars. The difficulty of the root canal can increase the cost. Single-rooted teeth require less surgical work by the dentist or endodontist. Teeth with multiple roots require more extensive surgery. Endodontists charge more because of their specialty training.Learn more about Dental
