Many times, dental crowns and root canal treatments go hand in hand.
When a tooth has been plagued by tooth decay, the inner portion of the tooth is infected and must be removed before it spreads. When root canal treatment is necessary, it is too large for a filling, and the structural integrity is often weakened.
Dental Crowns After Root Canal Treatment in Springfield
Dr. Ruggless may recommend dental crowns in Springfield, IL for multiple benefits. Tooth crowns will seal the tooth so that further infection, decay, or disease cannot enter. They also cover the entire tooth down to the gum line, which strengthens the tooth and allows patients to resume eating and chewing. Finally, our dental crowns are custom fabricated down the shape, size, and shade to look just like your natural tooth.
Dental crowns are a durable, long-term solution after a root canal.
Teeth can easily crack or break after a root canal, which is why dental crowns are highly recommended. They protect your vulnerable teeth from recurring decay, tooth pain, and worse.
