Yes, you can get braces if you have a root canal. And I wouldn't think it would make a difference to an insurance company either.

Not sure if your question is about costs. Two major procedures like a root canal and braces would probably exhaust annual maximums of most dental insurances. You would be well advised to get a supplemental plan for major dental work like root canal.

addendum: there is usually a lifetime max for orthodontics, separate from root canals etc. ask your insurance company about your coverage. but braces will work on a root canal treated tooth.

Is it possible to have braces and get a root canal?


Why do you need a root canal after you get braces on?

Root canals are not needed because of braces. It is just a coincidence if you need a root canal after you have had braces. Most likely what happened is that your home care was not the best while you had braces on so you developed a cavity. If the cavity is not treated it continues to get worse. Once the cavity gets close to the nerve of the tooth a root canal will have to be performed and the tooth will need a crown on it.

If you had a root canal done 11 months ago with only a temporary filling and you now have braces can you still have the root canal finished?

usually. The braces will not effect the root canal therapy, which should be completed ASAP. Temporary fillings are just that - temporary. They can break down and begin to leak after a certain amount of time. The tooth likely will need a crown after the root canal is completed, in which case the braces may impede the process. At the very least, request a permanent material/filling is placed at the time of root canal completion.

Can you have a root canal and get braces?

It should be perfectly okay depending on what has to be done to that particular tooth. Ask your dentist for a referral to an orthodontist (some orthos accept patients without referrals) and he/she should be able to answer all your questions during your consultation appointment. Yes, teeth move with braces even if they have undergone root canal therapy.

How much does a root canal usually cost?

The cost of a root canal differs by doctor, by tooth and by degree of difficulty. Larger teeth and more canals (roots) tend to be more expensive. In my experience, they range from $450-650 without insurance. You can still expect to cover 20-40% even if you have insurance. That being said, if you need a root canal, get it done. Do not wait. A situation that requires a root canal only gets worse with time, as the infection can spread.In my experience in the USA root canals go for anywhere from $800 - $1500. You also need to add the cost of a crown in most cases (to avoid the tooth breaking) which is an additional $800 -$1200. Typical cost without insurance is $2,000 per tooth for both. There are ways to reduce that cost. The obvious one is through insurance if you already have it. The less known way is through one of the discount dental plans available nationwide. These will save you $30-60% on a root canal procedure.

How much does a failed root canal job cost?

Call the dentist that did your root canal or any current dentist. When the nerve dies the tooth turns grey. Then the tooth has to be pulled. Depending on where your 'root canal' is, you may need a bridge or implant. This was my experience. Cost would depend on the dentist fee and insurance consideration. Blessings.

Can you get dry socket from a root canal?

No. By definition, a 'dry socket' is a painful condition that occurs following a tooth extraction, not a root canal. That is not to say that you cannot have pain following a root canal. You can, particularly if the tooth was acutely infected at the time of the root canal, or if the root canal is incomplete. You should consult with the dentist who performed the procedure and follow his/her recommendations.
