HOW MUCH DOES A ROOT CANAL COST? PRICES

Before we go into analyzing the price of a root canal, we are going to explain what exactly a root canal is.

Endodontics is a treatment of the tooth canals with the aim of eliminating the nerve, artery, and vein that said tooth has or eliminating the possible infection that the canal could have. Subsequently, in both cases, said ducts are filled with a product so that they are sealed.

The prices of incisors to molars can vary from €120 to €200. Do you want a price adjusted to your case?

WHEN IS THIS TYPE OF TREATMENT PERFORMED?

This treatment is performed when the tooth presents irreversible pulpitis or when it presents necrosis. Both are accompanied by pain, although sometimes necrosis may not present pain, for example, in the case of the appearance of a fistula.

HOW IS A ROOT CANAL DONE?

To start endodontics, after anesthetizing, access to the canal chamber must be prepared. Once the access has been created, the duct or ducts are located. At that time, we take the opportunity to measure their length with a device called an apex locator or with an X-ray. Subsequently, the instrumentation of the duct is started, cleaning with files and irrigating inside the duct with an antiseptic solution to leave the ducts free of vasculonervous debris or infection.

To finish, the ducts are dried with a few points of the paper and filled with a material called gutta-percha.

Endodontic treatment is usually carried out in 2 or 3 sessions, generally depending on how much it costs to remove the remains or infection of the tooth.

ENDODONTIC PRICES

The prices of a root canal vary from one clinic to another. 

In the first place, by the clinic’s own decision and according to its pricing policy.

Another possibility is the type of endodontics they practice. Working with mechanized endodontics is not the same as manual endodontics, the former being more effective, faster, and more comfortable for the patient.

The filling of the duct is also very important; the lateral condensation technique is now replaced by thermoplastic techniques that lead to a better seal, although there are clinics that continue to use the lateral condensation technique.

Mechanized techniques with thermoplastic filler are more expensive than the other option.

On the other hand, the experience of the dentist is important since it is a sometimes complicated treatment depending on the tooth and the disposition of its roots.

Then there is variability depending on the affected tooth; a molar can have four canals and an incisor one canal, with which logically, the price of endodontics varies. So… how much does a root canal cost? The prices of incisors to molars can vary from €120 to €200. It is important to observe if they include final reconstruction, that is, the final filling, or not.

The final recommendation is that endodontics be performed by an experienced dentist, correct diagnosis, and mechanized techniques with thermoplastic filling.
