Do I have to crown my tooth after RCT?
Yes, it is highly recommended that you crown your tooth within 3 months after the Root Canal Treatment. After RCT, because your tooth is essentially dead with no nerve endings, it will become brittle and break easily. A crown can ensure that if you bite on something hard, your tooth will not break and will be protected.
After RCT treatment, does the tooth become weaker?
Yes, the tooth will be weaker and more brittle, which is why crowning the tooth is recommended to make it stronger.
