How much does root canal treatment cost in Singapore? Are there any subsidies for root canal treatment?

Doctor's Answers (1)

Thank you for your question.

There are government subsidies for root canal treatment procedures in the following institutions: National Dental Centre, National University Hospital and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

The cost would vary depending on the tooth that requires root canal treatment.

For incisors and canines, it would be around $300. For premolars it would be around $500. And for molars it would be around $800.

After root canal treatment, a crown would be generally be needed, especially for premolars and molars to protect the tooth. The subsidized cost for crowns for premolars are around $500 whereas for molars it would be around $700 (lab fees included).

Hope this helps!
