Is Root Canal Therapy Cheaper than a Dental Crown?

Is a Root Canal Cheaper Than a Crown East Gwillimbury

Crowns and root canal therapy are services provided at Harvest Hills Dental Care in East Gwillimbury, Ontario. Many patients facing these procedures may have questions, including whether a root canal is cheaper than a crown. There is no direct answer because the two treatments are entirely different. Let’s look at crowns and root canals to determine how they are used to repair the smile.

What is a dental crown?

Our Harvest Hills Dental Care team describes a dental crown as a porcelain tooth “cap” covering the visible portion of the tooth above the gumline to give it an extra layer of strength and protection.

What is root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy is a restorative procedure used to remove the infected inner dental pulp of a tooth and seal it to protect it from future infection. It is best used to treat a tooth that might otherwise require our dental team to extract it permanently.

Is a root canal cheaper than a crown?

The answer to this question depends heavily on various factors, including the type and location of the tooth being treated. Generally speaking, root canals are typically less expensive than crowns because they require fewer materials and time for completion. However, if the affected tooth is severely damaged or decayed, a crown may be necessary to protect and preserve the remaining structure after performing root canal therapy. In cases like this, a crown would likely be more cost-effective than a root canal, depending on the circumstances. Ultimately, it is best to consult your dentist to discuss the treatment option that best suits your needs.
