Is it necessary to get a root canal to get a cap fixed on a broken tooth or is it possible just to fix the cap without root canal?

Ma'am it depends upon the extent to which the tooth is broken, if its involving the pulp then RCT is done followed by capping.

Whenever our teeth get an caries attacked our tooth losses minerals and calcium which gives the strength of the teeth as the caries progress and for saving a tooth dentists do root canal treatment to make it functional for chewing due this process we lost the water content in the tooth as it became more susceptible for breakage so ehenever in world ( its a protocols by universally) we put Crown to strength the remaining structure and make it properly working for the patient. So there is absolutely no choice one must have to go for Crowning after a root canals. And there is very common questions we faced regularly by patients. Crown after rct is mandatory as it's the integral part of treatment and studies proves that one root canal treatment success rates increases 6 times when a proper crown was done. Thanks

There are three layers in the teeth, if the impact is very minimal and doesn't involve the second and third layer,you can just go for tooth coloured filling and keep it in observation for few months and then depending on the colour changes and pain you can go for further treatment, if the impact is deep involving second and third layer rct with crown is advisable
Next Steps
filling or rct with crown depending on impact
