Are you looking for a dentist in the Van Nuys area? Look no further than Dr. Peter Suh and our team at The Dental Care Center! We offer comprehensive dentistry services to improve your oral health, such as root canal therapy. People often view root canals as the boogeyman of dentistry, but we don't practice your grandparents' root canals!

Thanks to advancements in dental technology, modern root canals are quick and painless. Not to mention Dr. Suh and our team have a gentle touch and produce clinically-excellent outcomes. 

Cost of a Root Canal in Van Nuys

The average cost of root canal therapy varies on a few different factors:

  • The tooth affected 
  • The crown material 
  • Degree of infection or damage to the tooth

For example, molars are more expensive than other teeth because of their location. Also, front tooth root canals can cost between $900–$1100. The average cost of a root canal in Los Angeles is between $700–$1500.

The only way to know the cost of your root canal treatment is to schedule an appointment with your dentist. During the appointment, your dentist will assess your oral health, the severity of the infection, and more, determining the cost. Another consideration is if you have dental insurance or are paying out-of-pocket.
