How Much Does A Root Canal Cost?

Postby bluefete » June 29th, 2019, 8:29 am

Dentist is quoting $5,000.00 for a relative to get it done over 3 visits.

Is this a true refection of the cost and number of visits?

Feedback appreciated. Thanks.

More like $7k. Yes it takes several follow up sessions to get everything done. A root canal is a complicated procedure:

Another option is to just do an extraction and done the story. Usually it's about 1/2 the price of a root canal.

But you loose the tooth
And well and implant is plenty more money and also a 2-3 step process

its not a pleasant experience at all & yes 2-3 visits + big $$$

if u ever went thru 1 or go watch it on youtube , u will know why they charge so much

did 1 few yrs ago & trini dentists charge exactly what they charge in us cause i had googled it back then

make sure u do d cap\capping which is d final procedure or all what u did to d tooth b4 wont last , tooth will decay out in a few yrs ... i learn dat d hard way

extraction is waaaay cheaper of course nobody wants to lose any teeth ...

Dentists say it's false. What else do you expect them to say when it affects their pocket.

Our evidence might be that Manning died right after doing one. You decide if you want to save the tooth or your life.

Those are damn good prices.

And implants ?

Have two broken root canal teeth top back on either side I wanna replace..bottom jaws perfect thank god..those two broke eating at different times..no pain no seepage or infection ,not visible but eating can be a lil tricky at times depending on food and well they're fugly..and sometimes yuh know we like to open we mout big ..and I don't wanna just extract them because you know they stil supporting and stabilizing other teeth..

Once you do a root canal the tooth is dead and the enamel will get brittle and deteriorate — cap or no cap. So, I asked my dentist about going to implants one time instead of "wasting" money on a root canal since I will end up there anyways.

Man hit me a figure of $ 18,000 because yuh need titanium rod and all kinda shyte...:shock:

Is all right, I go live with the space between meh teeth.

a root canalled tooth is very hollowed out so any biting pressure is off the edges holding it up
like trying to pong a brick with a solid piece of wood vs a hollow bamboo

a padna had to do a root canal on a front bottom incisor, the temp cap and associated work was real expensive compared to a molar
he tell me his cost was $21k, and that is with his energy company insurance, so it must cost close to $80k

implant work could be real tricky too, if the bone below not solid sometimes they does pack in some human bone powder and leave it for a few weeks to set before installing the screw.

About 4 years ago I remember a man said around $1500-2000 for the procedure and about $3000 for the crown.

Also for reference I think a man say in the US they wanted $3000USD but I can't remember if that was crown only, or whole procedure, or if that was even true.

I had the bone marrow done, did two implants at 15k each about 4 years go.

I takes 6 months to do, cause they drill your bone and screw in the socket. Man was using a hammer to set the socket in place. It shakes up your jaw bones. The bone then has to grow in to socket making a permanent bond that takes 6 months to heal. Once that is done then they screw in the post and set the new tooth in. Was a good, but costly.

Your ever seen what they do to a tooth to crown it ? its hardly a tooth after they trim it,sometimes the crown breaks off at the gum line and your're left with half a tooth and roots..some dentists try to work with it as it still may be better than implants..depends on how much remains above the gum line..

I think we just have to be more careful how we biting as we get older yes...man I used to strip the hardest cane including biting off the knots with and peeling with my front teeth.. not ti mention crushing kmots with my molars !

Aging sucks ! lol..

There are a lot of dentists who do root canals that are not properly qualified to do so, and then you end up in serious complications and further expenses.
