Is it okay to wait for 3 months to get a crown after root canal?

Many factors: A great deal depends on the tooth itself, how it was left, and several other factors. The principal problem is the other teeth around and opposing the root canal tooth.

If not get a temporary crown. ...Read more

Depends: If the previous crown is intact and other than the new hole, undamaged then you don't, as long as there is not recurrent decay. Your dentist should be able to give you a good recommendation.

Confused: A root canal and a crown are 2 separate procedures. And always 2 separate fees. I don't fully understand your question. Did you have an existing crown on the tooth. If so, existing crows sometimes need replacing and always at an additional fee. If you did not have an existing crown and need a crown, then the crown is an additional and separate fee. Have your dentist discuss this w you! ...Read more

Is a crown always required after root canal treatment?

No: A crown is not always required after a root canal. After a root canal, a tooth becomes more brittle and more likely to break. A crown helps prevent the tooth from breaking. If you decide not to get a crown placed on the tooth then you are taking a chance of losing that tooth although you spent the time and money doing the root canal. Take your dentist's advise. ...Read more

I had a temporary crown put in after a root canal about 1 and 1/2 years ago and have not gotten the permanent crown put in. Is this bad?

Only if...: It's only bad if you mind losing the tooth. Temporary crowns are just that, temporary. They are not designed to last more than a very short time. Greatest risk is leakage of the sealing material between the cap and the tooth, allowing bacteria to get under the crown and destroy the tooth. Please see your dentist asap. ...Read more
