It can happen. Removing a lot of the tooth for a crown can cause the tooth to go into "shock" and die. Meaning it needs a root canal. Or it could have been that the tooth was so decayed that it was very close to exposing the nerve when all of the decay was removed. Sometimes teeth heal themselves and other times they don't and they need a root canal. It happens occasionally.
It is not very common but it's something that can happen.
Sometimes the pulp has extentions that are close to the edge of the tooth and that don't always show on an x-ray. That is why, in these cases, the pulp might be irritated after putting a crown, therefore needing a root canal.
No, a root canal is not necessarily required when getting a crown.
I think its because the crown is not the same size as ur previous tooth,get it altered by ur dentist.
usually when you get a root canal there is not much tooth structure remaining and a crown helps support the tooth... so your tooth can break if you dont get a crown
A crown is typically recommended after a root canal because the tooth will tend to become very brittle and may fracture easily. A crown can prevent this.
yes it can
Is replacing bonded tooth with a crown necessary to prevent root canal?
In my experience the answer is yes. I have had three root canals and only one crown. Let me explain before you get excited. I had an uneventful, yet rather expensive root canal/crown combo shortly after having my son 8 years ago. Then I had another root canal done in 2/08. I had a temporary filling in place. I never went to get the crown done because it was too expensive and I had lost my dental coverage. Well fast forward to today and I had to get another root canal on that same tooth because it became reinfected and was throbbing painful. So while researching "how long until Novocaine wears off". I saw this question was unanswered and thought I could share my experience. I know the entire root canal/crown thing is really darn expensive but in my experience don't wait, 'lest you want to do it all over again.' By the way, the charge to redo my root canal was more, not less expensive the second time around. You better believe I am getting my crown right away this time.
Once root canal treatment is performed, the patient must have a crown placed over the tooth to protect it. The cost of the treatment and the crown may be expensive.
If you have a root canal done, most likely you'll need a crown. But if it was done through a bridge, there is already a crown on that tooth. A bride is just three or more crowns fused into one piece to replace a missing tooth. It is possible that doing a root canal through the brige will damage the bridge and the whole until may need to be replaced if that happens. But that's not common.
If you don't have a crown placed on a root canaled tooth, it could fracture or break resulting in the tooth having to be extracted.
After a root canal, it is highly recommended to put a crown on the tooth. After putting the crown you can eat anything u want but do not forget to brush twice a day. If you didn't put the crown even then you can chew things but not very hard.
