Root canal therapy is perhaps one of the most common dental treatments performed around the world. Has your dentist told you that you need root canal treatment? If so, you’re not alone. It is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth.
People typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During root canal treatment, or Endodontic treatment as it is professionally known, a dentist carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space. Being a common treatment also raises the frequently asked question of how much does a root canal cost in Manhattan NYC.
Most dental insurance policies provide some coverage for endodontic treatment. Root canal costs in Manhattan NYC cost anywhere from $1,200-$2,500. Here at Sachar Dental root canals usually cost around $1050-$1500 depending on the tooth undergoing treatment.
Dentists save millions of teeth each year with root canal treatment. In fact, according to the American Association of Endodontists, more than 15 million root canals are performed every year. Let’s face it, it’s no secret root canals get a bad rep in the dental world. People usually cringe or get upset the second their dentist informs that a tooth needs root canal therapy. However, the reality is, root canal therapy actually relieves pain and helps save your natural tooth. Most patients who have undergone the treatment describe the process as virtually painless. If you have an infected tooth or a tooth that is deteriorating badly because of cavities, root canal therapy may just be able to save it. The treatment can save your tooth, restore it to good health, and give you a lifetime of function!
Root canal costs in Manhattan NYC varies depending on how complex the problem is and which tooth is affected. Everyone has different types of teeth known as Incisors or front teeth, Cuspids/Canines, Premolars and Molars (this also includes the wisdom teeth). Front teeth generally have a single canal and are therefore easy to perform while Cuspids and molars have anywhere up to three canals.
What your treatment includes may also affect pricing, for example the need for X-rays to identify where and what the problem is with your tooth. Another part of your treatment may include the need for dental crowns used alongside tooth fillings to cover up teeth that have been treated.
