I think I paid around $700 for a root canal back in 2008, when an abscess under the tooth ( molar) went south while I was visiting family on vacation in PA. Considering all the work, skill, and time both the dentist (my mother's dentist was kind enough to see me on an emergency basis), and his father the endodontist who worked with him, spent on that root canal, I thought it was a fair price.

Ah, right you are. My bad...my mistake, I meant to say endodontist, sorry for any confusion.

I just had a root canal on tooth no. 15 (a back molar). I called four endodontists. The quotes were $1050, $1200, $1450, and $1750. That was just for the root canal. The crown was another $1115 (one post, porcelain). I live in Colorado Springs. I checked the prices against a dental insurance schedule for Colorado Springs; the prices were more or less in line with it.

Like the others, I agree that you got a great bargain. I had several back about 8-10 years ago and was charged over $700 back then. Thank goodness for good dental insurance.
