Where can I find affordable root canals in Houston, TX?
URBN Dental offers safe, effective, and affordable root canals in Houston, TX. We carefully examine your teeth and run comprehensive dental exams to ensure there are no other means of saving your teeth. We recommend root canals if your tooth is severely compromised, with the infection having spread into the pulp chamber. If the cavity hasn’t entered the pulp chamber, we use dental fillings or crowns to address the damage. However, if you must get a root canal, we offer affordable root canal treatments with a perfect track record.
At URBN Dental, we understand that dental treatments are often costly for some patients. But we also believe that everyone should have access to basic dental care services, including root canal therapy. To that end, we accept all major insurance plans to minimize your out-of-pocket costs for root canal treatment. We also examine your insurance plans, contact your provider, and help you get the best insurance coverage possible for your treatment. As such, we offer some of the most affordable root canals in Houston, TX.
You can get a root canal performed at our dental offices in Midtown or Uptown. Our Midtown dental clinic is located at 3510 Main St Ste E, Houston, a short walk from downtown Houston. The neighborhood is widely known for its theaters, music venues, restaurants, bars, and friendly art galleries. Our Uptown dental clinic is located at 2400 Mid Ln #350, Houston, between the trendy shopping centers of River Oaks District and Highland Village. Both of our dental offices in Houston have plenty of parking spaces.
URBN Dental also has a stellar reputation, with 5-star ratings and reviews from all patients, one of whom recently wrote: “This place is AMAZING. Recommended 10000%. All the staff had the best attitude, I went in for a cleaning and to get a guard, and everyone was so patient with me and made everything they could to make me feel as comfortable as possible. Very transparent with prices, and they talk you through the process. They treat you more like a friend than a patient. Love this place!”
How much does a root canal cost in Texas?
The cost of a root canal in Texas depends on several factors, including the dentist’s qualifications, consultation fees, anesthesia costs, medications to prevent infections, the extent of the damage, and the location of the affected tooth. Most people assume that the cost of a root canal is different for different locations because of accessibility to the teeth, but that’s not accurate.
In actuality, the location of the affected tooth matters because different teeth have different numbers of root canals. The front teeth usually only have one root canal, while the posterior teeth have two or three root canals. As such, root canals in the posterior teeth need more work. The cost of a root canal is lowest for the front teeth, followed by bicuspids, and the molars are the most expensive.
In most cases, root canal costs are covered by dental insurance. But you don’t necessarily get full coverage — it depends on the waiting period, limits, deductibles, co-pays, etc. In some cases, the insurance pays for a percentage of the root canal treatment’s cost, perhaps 35% to 50% of the cost. In other cases, the amount of coverage you receive may be limited by your overall limit and current usage.
If the cost of the root canal exceeds your insurance coverage, you’ll have to pay for the rest of the cost yourself. You must find a dentist or dental office that handles all your insurance details and gives you a complete breakdown of the cost of a root canal, with and without insurance coverage, before your treatment. As such, you can go to the treatment, knowing exactly what you’ll owe.
What’s the average cost of a root canal retreatment?
Root canal retreatment is generally more complex than the first root canal because the dentist needs to remove the prosthetic, fillings, and other materials to access the root canal for the new procedure. As such, in most cases, the cost of the root canal retreatment will be higher than the initial cost.
What’s the average cost of a root canal and crown?
The cost of the root canal and crown depends on the type and material of the crown. You can get dental crowns in various materials, including gold crowns, porcelain crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, zirconia crowns, etc. Each type of crown and material has a different cost. The cost of the crown will also depend on the location of the crown. You should discuss your options with your dentist.
Why is a root canal treatment needed?
A root canal is necessary to prevent the dental infection from spreading further. The fact that you need a root canal indicates that the infection has already spread into the pulp tissues. As such, you need to treat your root canal before the infection compromises the entire tooth.
Is it painful to have a root canal done?
You receive local anesthesia before the procedure. As such, a root canal is a painless and simple procedure.
Is there anything I can do to avoid the need for future root canals?
- Maintain optimal oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and rinsing regularly.
- Don’t bite down on hard objects.
- Wear a mouthguard if you play sports or have bruxism.
- Go for regular dental cleanings.
- Get dental fillings as soon as you find cavities.
