Root Canal with A Crown

Pasadena Texas Dentist: Root Canal through a Crown

In some situations after a crown is placed the nerve may die. This may happen suddenly or happen many years after the crown is placed. In this case, a root canal procedure will be necessary. A hole is created in the crown in order to accesses the nerve. The diseased tissue is thoroughly cleaned and removed. Next, the core of the tooth is sealed and then a filling is placed to restore the crown’s structural integrity. However, sometimes a new crown must be made.
