: i'm not quite sure i understood..
: is a RCT for people who's tooth is half-gone, decayed?
: And after a RCT i will need a new crown or? Because half of the one i have is gone..and how much will the crown cost? Or is it included with the price of the RCT?
A RCT can be done a tooth as long as their is still enough ROOT structure left.If your DDS feels that there is still enough structure left to save the tooth then yes a RCT can be done.A crown is something that does need to be done after a RCT is completed but NO, it is not included in the cost of a RCT.Along with the crown a post and build-up will need to be done as well, The cost for the post and crown will run you about 800.00-1200.00 again depending on what part of the USA you are in.If you have insurance most will pay about %80 of the RCT and %50 of the build-up and crown.
