Why does my tooth need a crown after it had root canal treatment?

Once the root canal treatment has been completed, the tooth is in a weakened state. Unprotected teeth with completed root canal treatments are much more likely to fracture, potentially causing the loss of a tooth. A crown is used to cover the tooth and prevent the tooth from breaking.
