  • To begin with, I would like to tell you that the chances of root canal failure increases if tooth capping is not done. Root canal is a type of treatment in which the diseased pulpal tissue is removed, the root canal enlarged, the canal irrigated and medicated and obturated (filled) with obturating material. The canal preparation makes the tooth weak and lesser capable to withstand occlusal forces. The tooth cap or crown so becomes must to reduce the chances of treatment failure. If cost effective treatment is sought, then treatment in dental college can be an option.
