  • If the tooth is already root canal treated and it has got infected again then you have to go for the reroot canal treatment to treat the inection. Your dentist will decide after taking the X-ray whether in your case reroot canal can be done as the success of the treatment dependes upon the case slection. Yes, it s due to the infected tooth that you are feeling the crown has become high. The formation of abcess at the apex of the tooth causes its elevation and hence the crown feels high.
