Crown acts like a shield or barrier to prevent reinfection and also possible chances of fracture of rct treated tooth . So it is always best to get a crown above the rc treated tooth

Hi dear, Mostly after Root canal , crowns are given so that the Tooth does not break as the tooth becomes brittle after rct . It is recommended to go for crown as in future, there is a possibility of fracture or more decay of tooth .
