Need cheap root canal and filling for rotten tooth

i have a tooth that had a cap on it. the cap was probably 12 yrs old and it cracked last week. the tooth is starting to get really sensitive without the cap. i am really thinking that i need another root canal in the tooth. i don’t have dental insurance so i just want to get it filled this time. i know something needs to be done. other than looking for a dentist on google is there a way to find a dentist who will do a cheap root canal and fill the tooth? thx ethan

Ethan – Most dentists will provide you with a root canal treatment, and make it affordable for you. Select a few dentists, call them, and ask about payment plans or arrangements for patients who don’t have dental insurance.

You should know that if your tooth is so damaged that it needed a dental crown, a dental filling won’t be enough to protect it. A new crown will be required. You will be able to wear a temporary crown while the new one is being made for you.

An examination is required to determine the correct treatment for your tooth. It is possible that you don’t need another root canal treatment, and that a new crown is all that’s needed. While your tooth is unprotected, you can expect to feel sensitivity.

As soon as possible, make the calls to dental offices so your tooth can be treated. Without the crown, the tooth is weak. Prompt treatment can prevent further damage to the tooth. If there is further damage to the tooth, it will be more expensive to restore.

Don’t neglect quality to find the cheapest treatment available. If the restoration of your tooth isn’t done correctly, it will need to be repeated. And that will cost you more money in the long term.

How much is a tooth crown if I don’t have dental insurance?

I am only working part time, and I don’t have dental insurance. I have a tooth that has been filled several times, and my dentist says that the tooth is really damaged. He says that I need a crown. I am going to get a second opinion to see if I really need a crown. If I do, I want to get an idea of how much it costs, but without insurance. Can you give me an estimate of how much a crown costs without insurance? Thanks. Jared

Jared – The cost of a dental crown varies based on the type of crown you receive, where you live in the country, and the dentist you choose. You can choose an all-porcelain crown or a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, which can be fused to base metal, noble metal, or high noble metal.

An all-porcelain crown has a porcelain foundation. A crown fused to base metal will have a foundation that is not precious metal. Noble metal contains gold. High noble metal contains a higher percentage of gold. Depending on the dentist you choose and where you live in the country, the cost of a porcelain-fused-to-base-metal crown can range from $806.00-$1,200.00. The cost of an all-porcelain crown is approximately $900.00-$1,500.00. Other fees and expenses will likely be incurred in association with receiving the crown.

If you receive a crown, you want one that will look natural and that will last. We recommend that you find one or two experienced cosmetic dentists to examine your tooth. Regardless of the type of crown you choose, an artistic cosmetic dentist will give you optimum results for the crown type. You can also ask about payment options to make the restoration of your tooth affordable.
