does anyone know if a tooth that has had a root canal definitely needs a crown, every time? and I am going for a post for my last root canal, and I am wondering about what the post is made of? I am sensitive to some metals, but I'm sure they will use something that is safe for everyone. thanks!!!

Re: crown?

I've been putting off a root canal because I'm also concerned about the glues & materials they use in this procedure. It seems the post would have to be stainless steel to be strong enough but I'm not sure about that. Maybe someone will answer your question. You're very brave to go ahead with it.
