  • After the root canal procedure, the tooth becomes brittle and weak so capping is given to the tooth. You can wait for now. Tooth may fracture if the ball hits your root canal treated tooth. To fix the crown onto the tooth, luting cement is used which will harden and set completely in few hours after crown is fixed. You can continue with your football practice after that. For more info on procedure for crown placement, you can refer to the following article…  http://www.identalhub.com/article_procedure-for-crown-placement-270.aspx
