Internal Resorption: post-root canal care: I recently (about 7 months ago) had a root canal on tooth #7 to address a minor case of internal resorbtion that had been detected via routine X-Ray.

The procedure was successful. Externally, the tooth is intact. Do I need to have a crown? ...Visitor from CA

The only person who can answer this question with a modicum of accuracy is the person who provided treatment and has the xrays to substantiate the necessity of a new crown.

In general terms, MOST root canals benefit by having a new crown... to protect the tooth structure that will eventually become brittle... as it applies to the "average" RCT therapy scenario.

There are many exceptiions to the rule, however.
