Do I need a crown after a root canal?

In most cases, crowns are needed after a root canal. This is because the tooth has been completely cleared our with the exception of the canal or the teeth can become more fragile after a root canal being more prone to fracturing.

When A Crown Is Not Needed

In certain cases, usually front teeth without previous fillings, a crown may not be needed after the root canal. Your Duxbury dentist is able to go in through the back side of the front teeth (anterior's) and fill in the space after clearing out the nerves. Older Couple Smiling
