Root canals and Crowns

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: muraiken  (5 years ago)
I had an old crown replaced and some decay removed and had pain after that and eventually a root canal. My question is this - I had an impression taken for the new crown before the root canal was done. So will the new crown fit the tooth after the root canal? Do root canals change the shape of a tooth sometimes?

Dear Muraiken,
If the crown is well figured, well worked it will fit in.
The crown is need to be glued only when the root canal treatment is finished.

Just as long as the hole through which the root canal done is not overfilled, the crown should fit fine.

Crown will fit properly if this procedure will be done correctly otherwise you will feel dental crown pain. So just be sure that dental crown procedure done properly by your dentist. You also have to take extra care of your dental crown.
