Dental Coverages, What is the ADA code for a Root Canal

I have this tooth that I know I needs to have a root canal.  A little over four months ago the dentist I was seeing told me I should have a root canal done on one of my teeth.  Since I was moving I put it off.  Now the dental insurance I have does not cover for me to see a specialist.  I was told that I would need to know the ADA code for an idea of cost.  If the root canal can be done by a general dentist I will have some coverage. How do I find out what is the right ADA code so I can check into my policy coverages and how would I know if I have to see a specialist or not?

    The only way of knowing the corrected ADA code for the root canal you may need, would be from a dentist. Same goes for whether or not you may need to see an Endodontic/Speclialist

    Since you have stated that you have seen a dentist already you may wish to call that dentist to find out the ADA code needed. Although keep in mind a lot can change in four months. That being the case you may need to go back to that dentist for a new valuation.

    Here are some basic ADA codes for root canal a general dentist may do.

    3310 Root canal, anterior
    3320 Root canal, bicuspid
    3330 Root canal, molar
