Root canal/crown
Amount: $444.00

Which Tooth: 19-middle botton left molarPractitioner:
Had a filling fall out of molar and didnt go to get it fixed for atleast 3-4 months. The molar then cracked. Had to get a root canal and crown. I have insurance with metlife with a 1500 max, root canal covered 80% and crown 60% ended up costing me 444.33, i was so suprised at how cheap it came out to be and this is not some hole in the wall place. Still have more insurance money for my few cavities.

Which Tooth: BackPractitioner:
I cracked the back of my tooth and was in severe pain the week before Christmas, my dentist suggested to perform a root canal, in order to save the tooth. I completed two sessions, and had no pain none what so ever.Did not have to take any pain pills and I only paid $350.00. By the way, I had no insurance. I don't know if my dentist was in a good mood because it was Christmas or what, all I know he got me out of pain, charge me $350.00 and sent me on my way. I have the best Dentist in the world!! when I return for my second session, NO CHARGE. NO PAIN TALKING ABOUT FAVOR FROM GOD. I Praise God for My Dentist.

If you get the dental work done at a dental school by fourth year or postgraduate dental students, (most large universities have dental and medical schools ), you can get a significant discount. And the work is usually excellent and is under the supervision of dental professors, with state of the art equipment. Hope this helps.

Stunned at the cost, but I see that it was in line with what other endodontists charge. Seems to have worked, with no pain now.

Which Tooth: #3Practitioner: Zinfadel Dental Practice in Sacramento
SHOP AROUND GUYS! Seriously if you are on a budget you need to shop around as if you were buying a car. One office told me 1,400 for one crown, i went online and got some cheap dental clinics in my area, most that have Medi-Cal/ Low-income based patients (usually offer cheaper prices than the private ones). I was also in pain like many of you but toughed it out with pain killers and anti-biotics until i found a good price. Luckily since I am a full-time college student and explained my situation to the receptionist, he helped me fill out some forms and were able to get my Root Canal covered for free so all i had to pay for was the crown. This office did not offer payments plans but were nice enough to let me pay half on my first visit and the other half when the crown came back from the lab and was ready to be put in. I hope i've encouraged some of you to shop around, i feel your pain!! I went through it. Good Luck.

Which Tooth: molar top left side 2nd from the backPractitioner: Ft Lauderdale FL
I had horrible pain I was charged $1200.00 for the first part of the procedure. He only said he killed 95% of the root to get me out of pain but that I have to come back for the rest of the procedure after the baby is born. He said another 45 mins in the chair then I need the crown and I have no idea what that is going to run me. I was in so much pain I didn't even ask what the price was now I am in shock that I am only a 1/3 of the way through. Thanks for the comments though as least I am more informed now.

Which Tooth: #4 PremolarPractitioner: Flanagan
I went in for a painful area above a previously root-canal'd & capped tooth. After x-ray, dentist explained 50% success record of retreated r/c teeth, so I deferred to his judgment and opted for implant/cap. I was never shown the x-ray. He injected anesthetic and returned 15 min. later. I remarked that I was putting quite a bit of money into one tooth.

Surprisingly, he never extracted the tooth, but gave me antibiotic. I learned (on the way out) that the implant/cap would cost me $2700. To have me make the decision to have the tooth extracted and the implant/cap done, costing me $2700 out-of-pocket without me having any idea of the expense of that decision was outrageous. Given a 50% chance of success and a relatively low cost for a r/c retreatment, I NEVER would have selected the extraction approach. I had asked for a copy of the x-ray on my way out, but have never received it.Neither was my cost submitted so it could be applied to my deductible.

Which Tooth: #12Practitioner: Keyvan Lazar DDS
I had a prior root canal on this tooth many years ago and had to have it redone. The reason for the higher price. My dentist in Ridgecrest sent me to Palmdale. I totally trust him and his recommendation was well worth the money. My mother has dentures and hates them. I will never have them. If I end up losing a tooth I will go to implants.
