You Need a Crown or Root Canal, Now what?

pueblo dentist
Has your dentist or endodontist told you that you need root canal treatment? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of teeth are treated and saved each year with a root canal, or endodontic, treatment. Remember, root can treatment doesn’t cause pain, it relieves it. Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages:

Efficient chewing
Normal biting force and sensation
Natural appearance
Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain


Crown or caps can serve as a replacement for decayed teeth above the gum line.  They are properly fit over the damaged teeth and act as it new outer surface. They are made of porcelain, metal with a thin ceramic layer. Gold is also commonly used for teeth in the back of the mouth.

Crowns may be used to:

  • Replace teeth that have become too broken or decayed to be fixed with a filling
  • Fill teeth that have the top parts removed from damage
  • Repair broken or faulty fillings
  • Enhance the appearance of the tooth
  • Seal a tooth after a root canal treatment

Having a crown placed in a damaged tooth might take more than two visits to the dentist. 


A “root canal” is the natural cavity located in the center of a tooth. Within the root canal is the nerve of the tooth along with a soft area called the PULP.

It involves the treatment of an inflamed pulpal tissue of a decayed or infected tooth. The procedures involve cleaning and sealing the inside of the tooth in order to remove the nerve and pulp. If decayed or infected teeth are not treated with a root canal, the surrounding tissue may become infected.

Bacteria can multiply in the tooth if the nerve tissue is damaged. Bacteria can cause infections or an abscessed (pus-filled) tooth. The root canal should be properly treated to avoid swelling throughout the face, loss of bone near the root, and/or drainage problems, sometimes creating a hole through the side of a tooth or through the cheek.
