I can't remember. I think I had a $1000 deductible. So maybe it was $1000...but then there were some other costs involved.

It really sucked...I had a tooth that had a couple fillings break, and then I had to get it fitted for a crown, had the crown put it, and two months later terrible tooth pain, had to get a root canal through the damn crown, then get the crown filled/repaired.

And yes, not only did I have the root canal, but I also had three novocaine shots, and then there was an emergency so I had to sit in the chair for literally an hour waiting for the doctor to come back, got another novocaine shot but I felt half the procedure.

The worst was the burning smell. I don't know if it was them burning the nerve end or the friction of the drill on the tooth. But it was so terrifying.'s a cage. $50 to save me $1000 worth of root canal and potentially many hours of torture in a dentist's office.
