Tooth pain because of a broken tooth and exposed root canal ?

Tooth pain, RCT?: You will have to see a dentist in order to determine whether or not that tooth can be saved and if so, what needs to be done. You may require root canal therapy which can be performed by your dentist if he\she can, or referred to an endodontist if not. Severe pain in a tooth does not always require rct. The sooner you go, the sooner you'll know.

Of course.: You got the root canal therapy and the crown to save the tooth. You saved the tooth to use the tooth. Ask your own dentist regarding any precautions.
