Will I need a crown after my root canal?

Whether or not we need to place a dental crown after your root canal at Singh Smile Care really depends on the condition of your tooth. In many cases, the answer is yes, you will most likely need a crown to protect the tooth from further damage.

A root canal is needed when severe decay or infection reaches the innermost portion of your tooth. This part of the tooth is called the root canal and contains dental pulp, tissue, nerves, and of course, the root. If the decayed and infected material is not removed, you will eventually lose the tooth as the decay progresses and destroys the tooth structure.

In certain cases, by the time the decay reaches the root canal, it has already compromised the rest of your tooth. Dr. Singh will need to remove this decay as well as performing a root canal. Depending on the severity of damage, a dental crown may be the only way to protect and preserve what’s left of your tooth.

Our goal is to try to preserve as much of the structure of your tooth as possible. A root canal accomplishes this by eliminating the cause of infection. By adding a dental crown, we can ensure that the natural part of your tooth will stay healthy and protected.

Please contact our Phoenix dental office if you would like more information about the need for dental crowns after a root canal.
