Question:
Root Canal without a Crown?
I just had a root canal. The dentist told me I now need a crown. How long can I wait before getting one?

Is it necessary? ...Visitor from OH

Answer:
You want to put a crown on your tooth yesterday!

After a root canal the tooth loses all its' vascularity or moisture. The tooth becomes dried out or desiccated and brittle much the same way a branch dries out and can be easily snapped in half.

By the time the average person has had a root canal, there are almost always other structurally compromising things going on with the tooth ....from fracture to decay.

After a root canal, your tooth is extremely vulnerable to fracture and if you do not crown your tooth this will happen. Then you will have your tooth extracted, wasted your money on the root canal and have a much bigger problem with much greater expense.
