It's only important if you want to keep the tooth and not have it pulled in a few years despite the money you paid for the root canal. A root canal is not completed until it gets a crown. A root canal removes the inside part of a tooth that is infected. This leaves it weak and a full coverage crown is needed to maintain the strength. There are very rare exceptions where a simpler filling will suffice.

Yes, I have 3 and they all have crowns. Actually very reasonable compared to the alternative if the tooth ends up breaking - go without it and have an empty space, or a $5,000 implant.

Usually, yes. It protects the remaining tooth structure which becomes brittle without the nerve.

Over the decades I've had several root canals & all were capped.

My son had one root canal & it did not require a cap. Years later & the root canal tooth is just fine. He sees the dentist every 6 months.

However, only a dentist can answer your individual question with any certainty.
