Usually, people ask why we need a crown after root canal treatment. As we removed the decayed part of tooth during the treatment, remaining tooth structure is not sufficient to bear the masticatory load and it might fracture. Moreover, root canal treated tooth don't have blood supply which makes tooth brittle hence prone to fracture. What is the use of root canal treatment when eventually you will end up breaking your tooth.
