    I got a free checkup and cleaning from a friend who is a dentist. But
    on that day after an X-ray he determined that I needed a root canal
    done. Unfortunately, I had to fly out and it could not be done within
    the available time frame.

    - I cannot fly back
    - I am in Houston, TX


    Questions:

    1. How much would a root canal on the 3rd or 4th on the left side of
    the mouth in the upper jaw? I believe this would be the canine and
    pre-molar respectively (unless I got my school biology all mixed up) ?

    2. What kind of Dental plan would cover this the best?

    - The thing is my company has a dental plan but apparently it does
    not cover a lot. So I am trying to find a way to make sure that his
    ROOT CANAL does not suck me dry. Do let me know please ?

    3. What might I have to pay for the root canal with the dental plan ?

    4. Would I need a cap for the 4th tooth ?
    5. Would I need a cap for the 3rd tooth ? (I am thinking most likely
    yes)

    6. How much would I have to possibly pay for a cap and WHICH insurance
    TYPE or BRAND would be able to cover the ENTIRE CANAL + CAP process in
    the best way ?

    7. Is there a way to get this process done at some dental school for
    cheaper ?

    Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    AS
