Does every tooth that needs a crown need root canal treatment too? Absolutely not. Root canals are only needed if the infection in a tooth has spread to the root canal system within the tooth causing pain and sensitivity or if there is insufficient tooth structure to support a crown. At Acharya Dental, we believe in a conservative approach only treat the root canal of a tooth if clinical and radiographic (Xrays) findings show us the need for the procedure. Crowns are most successful when they are done on teeth that have not been root canal treated, and that is why we strive to preserve the vitality of your teeth.
