Your tooth may require a crown after root canal treatment?

In order to get access to the nerve inside the tooth during root canal treatment, Dr. Crisp has to remove a considerable amount of tooth substance. This can weaken the tooth and make it more vulnerable to pressure if the tooth is rebuilt with conventional filling materials. Therefore Dr. Crisp may recommend a crown to be put on top of the root filled tooth after the root canal treatment has been completed to protect the tooth from cracking. Dr. Crisp will recommend you wait two weeks before placement of the crown to insure proper healing takes place. You should avoid chewing on that side to allow it to heal.
