Depending On Your Policy, Your Dental Coverage Is Likely Able To Cover The Cost Of A Much Needed Root Canal

If you have been dealing with an infected tooth that is in badly need of a root canal, it is critical to address the problem as soon as possible to avoid further complications. However, for most adults fear of the dentist and especially root canals is worse than having to speak in public. Root canals have a bad rap. However, advancements in modern dentistry have made them virtually pain free, and it is possible to use your dental coverage to pay for it.

 Do I Really Need A Root Canal?

A root canal is relied upon only when all other options have been exhausted in order to save an infected tooth from extraction. Although, pulling the tooth will solve the problem short term. Doing so, can also unveil several other complications for the rest of your mouth and possibly the need for expensive implants. So, we believe in treating and saving the tooth when it is possible.

Can I Use My Dental Coverage?

Every dental policy is different, but in most cases, your dental insurance can be used to offset the cost of a root canal. After reaching your deductible, most policies give you a yearly allowance that can be used for restorative services such as a root canal. The average dental insurance policy typically covers 50% to 80% of the cost of a root canal. At the Dental and Denture Care Center, we can help you maximize your benefits in order to help reduce the costs you might have to pay out of pocket.

Can I Wait On Getting A Root Canal Until My Dental Coverage Can Help Pay For The Costs?

If you wait to treat your infected tooth, there’s a chance the dentist may be unable to save it. Most policies expire at the end of the year and benefits don’t roll over into the next. If you don’t use your benefits before the new year, there’s a chance you could end up with a larger than expected dental bill. We alway encourage our patients to address an infected tooth sooner than later.

How Much Will I Have To Pay Without Dental Coverage?

There isn’t a set rate for a root canal, because the cost is based on the complexity of each patient’s case, such as the level of infection or the number of teeth infected. Your dentist will provide you with an estimate and explain your payment options such as the ability to use your dental coverage or dental financing, if it is needeed. If there is a remaining balance due at the end of the procedure, our team will help find a solution for you that won’t break the bank.
