One of my front tooth and one tooth beside that underwent root canal 1n half years ago. 1 week ago, while eating. Some hard thing hitted one tooth that is beside the front tooth and it is fractured now. Is it obvious or it is a result of poor root canal treatment?

Root canal treated tooth will be normally weak than your other normal tooth.It tends to easily fracture.So, capping after root canal treatment is the must to avoid such fractures.
You might not have gone for crown on that tooth you ve got rct done. So its not due to rct but due to not getting your tooth crowned.
It's because u did not take cap now get a post crown
