Seal Crowned Tooth with Root Canal?

Q: I had a crowned tooth break off. The tooth had a root canal done on it so it doesn’t hurt. Can I get it sealed?

A: You should be seen by an experienced laser periodontist to determine if there is enough tooth structure to place another crown safely. Sometimes a crown lengthening procedure might need to be done to do a replacement crown on a broken tooth. In extreme cases, the tooth cannot be saved and other options might need to be considered such as an implant or conventional bridge. Of course, an x ray and exam is mandatory.
