Had root canal treatment year ago ,if my crown falls and I drink water would anything go into my blood stream . Or the bone in tooth would protect ?

In brief: No

The root canal is sealed so nothing can get in through the root of the tooth unless the root was fractured below the gum line when the crown came off.
Check with your dentist to have the crown re cemented.
