Factors that affect the cost of root canal treatment
The first factor is the infection of the tooth
Patients with mild infections can be treated with a one-time root canal restoration. The cost of a one-time root canal is not very expensive. When the tooth is more severely diseased and requires multiple treatments, the cost will be higher than the cost of a one-time treatment.
The second factor is the location of the tooth
The number of root canals varies within a tooth in different locations. The cost of root canal treatment will vary accordingly. Generally speaking, teeth in the anterior region have fewer root canals, and treatment is relatively simple and will be less expensive. If the affected tooth is located in the posterior area, it will take more effort than treating the anterior area, and the cost will be higher.
The third factor is the material of the root canal
As society advances, the materials used for root canals are increasing, and the price will change depending on the material. For the specific reasons for this difference in price, check out this article.
