10. That's true

which is why a root canal must always be followed up by a full coverage crown either gold, porcelain or porcelain with a metal under structure. Crowns are the best and only way to protect a root canal treated tooth. A tooth that has had a root canal no longer has a blood supply and is weaker that a live tooth but if it has a properly prepared crown over the top of it, it can last for years, decades or longer. Cracked teeth can be covered with a crown and can also last for many years as well. If the root of a tooth cracks, extraction is necessary. Replacement options for that tooth can vary.
