Question: My dentist told that I need to have a root canal done on one of my top back molars. However, since there a slight crack down the tooth he said I need to see a Endodontist to have it done.
My current dental insurance plan which is an HMO does not cover for me to see a specialist of any type. My dentist told me that it could run around $800–$1000 to have the root canal treatment done by an Endodontist give or take depending on whom I go to. Where can I go to help me with this additional dental cost I was not ready for?
Reply: You may want to review our dental discount plan options. A discount plan is effective the next business day with no waiting periods. As long as the plan in question has an Endodontist dentist in their plan net work of providers, you can go right to the Endodontist and get at least 20% off their normal charges.
Dental Health Care, How does having a Root Canal save the tooth. Root canal can be done by either a general dentist or in some cases an endodontist specialist. Normally you would go to a general dentist first and if determine that you should see a endodontist the general dentist will refer you to one. The dentist will remove the inflamed or infected pulp that is in the inside of your tooth. Then the tooth is filled up and sealed. If you went to a endodontist dentist for the root canal you would return to your general dentist for a crown. The crown will help to protect your tooth and restore it back to full function.
Even though having a root canal and crown work can be costly, most dentist will advise this procedure in order to save a tooth. Some people feel that having an extraction would be less costly however that is not the case if you are wanting to replace the missing tooth pulled. Leaving gaps in your teeth due to pulling is never a good idea because shifting of your remaining teeth will happen over time. That is why it is a good idea to have dental insurance in place prior to having any major dental services render.
New Hampshire dental care, My filling came out after having a Root Canal done. I am really upset about this issue. I had a root canal done that I had to pay out of my pocket since I do not have dental benefits though my job. So the cost was $595.00. You expect that when you paying that much money the filling would have stayed in.
However my fell out just three days latter. I can not go to the dentist for them to re fill it until three more day which I worry is a long time to wait. What can I do not to crack this tooth. Idea I do not want an even large bill because I need to then have the tooth capped
New Jersey dental insurance, No Credit how do I get dental care. I recently stabilized my finances by goiing to a debt managment company which as really helped me with the current debt I was in. However it has also made it so I can not enter into new debt until I now pay off the new managed debt that was left.
My problem is that I need to have two dental root canal done with crowns since I do not have dental insurance I can not afford to pay in full. The dental office will not offer me a payment plan unless I have good credit. Which is not happening right now. I can put this off for a little while but it will only get worse so I am not sure what to do at this point.

I am trying to get dental insurance before I have the two root canals and crowns that I will need. I spoke it over with my dentist and know I can not afford to have this dental work done on my own.
I have been looking at your Careington 500 dental plan that my dentist refer me to get. He stated it is the only discount plan he on if I am wanting to say with him. Which I do. I would like to know does every thing start right away or are there waiting periods?
I am looking for a supplemental dental insurance plan. Right now I have Delta dental PPO with my job. I need to have two wisdom teeth pulled and a root canal on my back molar. My Delta dental has a $1000.00 max yearly limit.
With the dental work I will be needing a $1000.00 max will not get me much at all. So I am looking for a way to help off set my additional dental cost. Just have the root canal will max my Delta dental plan. I will still need a supplemental dental plan to help with the cost of the wisdom teeth extractions.
So I have like two root canal which also need crowns that I found out is going to cost me over $3500.00 when it is all done. I do not have dental insurance so I started looking for one. Only to find out that the dental insurance plans want me to pay like 45.00 a month but will not even cover me for a year and then only at 40%. What a rip off.
There is no way I can afford to pay %3500.00. So I am stuck in waiting for something to come down. Do you think Obama’s health care plan will also offer free dental work. I do not know what else to do and not sure how long I can put of my dental needs.
