We like to keep your root canal cost of treatment as simple as possible. That’s why we use standardised pricing bands.

How much you pay will depend on how many root canals the individual tooth has, but your dentist will be able to advise you on this at your consultation. Retreatment will tend to be slightly more expensive as the procedure is more complex.

Your dentist will need to remove all of the filling from your last treatment before they’re able to start again.

Luckily however, the success rate for root canal therapy is extremely high so once it has been corrected, it’s very unlikely you will need any more work for years to come.

Dental crown with a post

If you currently have a dental crown with a post (either from previous root canal treatment or otherwise) and are requiring root canal therapy, you may need to have the post removed first.

This can leave your tooth rather weak, so it is essential that you use a fully qualified endodontist to ensure your tooth does not fracture in the process.

We charge from £350 for this intricate procedure. Once completed, you will be able to go ahead with your root canal procedure with our highly experienced specialist endodontist.

Internal teeth bleaching

We also offer internal teeth bleaching. Many of our patients opt for this treatment following their root canal procedure.

As there is a risk of teeth darkening in colour after the root canal – due to living elements of the tooth being removed – internal teeth whitening can bring your teeth back to the same shade as your remaining set – leaving you with a perfect, uniform smile.


Factors that impact root canal prices

Everyone’s teeth are different, but every tooth is different too.

They may look similar on the surface but the root formation of each tooth in your mouth is unique. That’s why root canal treatment costs can vary greatly.

The more roots a tooth has and the more root canals it has running through it, the more the treatment will cost.

Do different teeth cost more for root canal treatment?

You have four different kinds of teeth; incisors, canines, premolars, and molars.

Incisors are the eight front teeth in your mouth. You have four on the top and four in the bottom jaw with each incisor having only one root each.

Although this does limit the number of root canals each tooth can have, incisors cannot have root canal treatments performed through their biting surface like other teeth.

Instead, the endodontist must make the access hole through the back of the tooth to carry out the treatment.

Canines are the four sharp teeth either side of each row of incisors. They too can only have root canal treatment through the back of the tooth.

Canines and incisors almost always have the lowest root canal cost of treatment. Most premolars also only have one root each, with the exception of the upper first, which usually has two roots and two canals.

Premolars are usually slightly more expensive than canines and incisors. Molars, however, usually have the highest root canal cost of treatment and for good reason too.

The back teeth on your bottom jaw have two roots but have three or even four root canals per tooth. On the top jaw, however, molars have three roots each with as many as four canals.

Although this is the common formation, it’s possible your dentist may pick up additional canals or roots in your teeth in your x-rays.

However, they will check for this when you come in for your consultation at our North London practice based in Hampstead.

Does the extent and complexity of the damage mean higher costs?

If you’re needing a root canal, it will be because a cavity and / or a crack has allowed bacteria to enter your tooth. But, the severity of this cavity can have an impact on your total root canal cost.

If caught early, your endodontist will be able to fill the cavity fairly easily. However, as time goes by, the infection can become much worse and cause more complications.

So, your dentist will need to determine how severe your infection is, and how they can adjust your treatment. If the infection has been left too long, you may not have the option of a permanent filling.

Once a substantial part of the tooth’s permanent structure has been damaged, you will need to pay for a crown instead.

If the tooth is also abscessed or extremely infected, your dentist may need to clean and redress the tooth several times before it can be filled; increasing the length of your treatment time and total root canal cost.
