Why does a root canal treated tooth need a crown?

Once a tooth has had a root canal, it is no longer vital, which means it does not “feel” like it used to. You cannot tell that it is being overloaded with something hard which makes it more susceptible to breakage. We will normally recommend a crown to cover and protect a weakened or root canal treated tooth.
