Do I need to have a root canal just because I have to have a crown?
Generally speaking you don't want to have a live nerve in that area before going through the procedure of inputting your crown. Some people who opted not to have a root canal reported having extreme sensitivity when eating. Crowns may be applied after a root canal treatment to seal the tooth and prevent it from breaking.
Having said that some dentists have tooth by tooth approach as to whether to perform a root canal or not. Root canal is done when decay will likely (damage) or has already (killed) a tooth. For additional information read:http://www.webmd.com/oral-health/root-canal-treatment-18055
No you don't need a root canal unless the root of the tooth is infected from the decay. I have several crowns without root canals. You don't want a root canal unless you need one. It is expensive and not necessary if the root isn't involved.
To have a crown on non endodontic treated tooth is question of debate first you have to tell that whether your tooth is healthy or it is carious ( decayed)?
If it is healthy than you can have crown but if it is decayed Little bit I recommend you to have root canal.
