Do I need a crown after my root canal?

In most cases yes.  The dental crown will provide the necessary support and stabilization after the root canal treatment.  This is important to ensure the tooth does not continue to deteriorate or fracture.   Without the proper crown restoration, it is possible your tooth could fracture and require removal.
