Whether you’re planning that dream vacation, or that glamorous wedding, when a tooth ache hits, it can damage the pocketbook. While the majority of Americans have some form of insurance coverage to soften the blow, there are many still who have to pay with cash. When a root canal happens, it can cost a bit, so you’ll want to do your research to make sure you are getting a quality, but not costly root canal. Here are the average costs laid out in the United States:

  • Front teeth (Anteriors): Average cost $900 to $1,100.
  • Bicuspids (Premolars): Ranges from $400 to $1,800 with a typical cost of $900 to $1,100.
  • Molars: A little more expensive due to the number of roots. Between $500 to $2,000, with typical costs between $1,000 to $1,300.


At my own office, if you are paying out-of-pocket, with no insurance, these are typically our fees:

  • Front teeth (Anteriors): $600-$800
  • Bicuspids (Premolars): $700-$900
  • Molars$900-$1100

Keep in mind these are only estimates, as your actual treatment will depend on several factors, such as if there is a post present that needs to be removed, or if it is a retreatment on a previous root canal that has abscess, or anything else that can complicate treatment.

If you are unable to afford that fee, you can always seek out options like Care Credit to help afford the costs until you’re back on your feet. Either way, please contact our amazing office staff at Eastpoint Endodontics for more details on what it will cost you personally, with or without insurance!
