Why A Crown Restoration After Root Canal Treatment?

Mar 23 • 1 minute read

Crown restorations are a great idea after a patient has had a root canal. Below are the reasons why. 
 
  • Strength: Teeth that have had root canal treatment can be fragile because a large amount of tooth structure is removed during the process. A crown restoration provides strength that resists further fracturing of the tooth.
 
  • Good Seal: Crown restorations provide a good seal to prevent leakages and recurrent decay.
 
  • Durability: Dental crowns are strong and resistant to fracture and wear, protecting the teeth.
 
  • Longevity: 5-15+ years. The life span of a crown depends on the amount of wear and tear the crown is exposed to and how well the patient follows good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing daily and seeing your dentist as recommended.
