  • If the crown has come out and the tooth is already root canal treated then you should go to the dentist on priority basis as after Root Canal Treatment, the tooth is non vital and becomes brittle. It cannot take masticatory forces as such and can fracture any time and if it fractures then you may loose the tooth and due to this crowing is always recommended after Root Canal Treatment. Another this is that Root Canal Treated tooth normal has big fillings and they tend to come out if the crown is not there making the things complicated like tooth can get reinfected again. So it is better to go to the dentist ASAP to get the crown fixed. If the crown is fine then it will hardly take any time for the dentist to fix it back.
