I broke my teeth due to an accident so I am doing root canal treatment and it is recommended to install dental crowns and done by Sp.Orto while I know for treatment of root canals and crowns I should have done by Sp.KG I am confused whether sp.orto can attach crowns to teeth ?

There are many types of dentists based on their specialty. Three of them relate to your question, which are:
1. Dental conservation specialist (So.KG) is a dentist who handles dental restorations to restore tooth function and for aesthetic purposes. Some of the actions he can take are dental fillings, veneers, dental root surgery or surgery, and bleaching.
2. Orthodontist (So.ort) specialist dentist is a dentist who handles the problem of even distribution of teeth so that the function of chewing, speaking, and aesthetically becomes better.
3. Prosthodontist dentist (Sp. Pros), a dentist who handles dental repair and replacement, using dentures and dental implants. Dental crown installation is included in the expertise of this specialist doctor.
Often in the field, not all parts of this specialization are available in hospitals or clinics or dentist practices. So, in mild cases, such as broken teeth without any complications or other dental diseases, this case can be treated directly by a dentist specialist in prosthodontics for dental crowns, dentures or dental implants. In more complex cases, where a person has a broken tooth accompanied by tooth decay, it is necessary to take care of the root of the tooth and then require the treatment of dental crowns, ideally this case is handled first by a dentist conservation specialist for the treatment of tooth roots and then continued treatment by prosthodontist specialist for dental crown installation. However, on the basis of the unavailability of specific section dentists and so that patients do not feel operated here and there, then in the case of broken teeth accompanied by mild tooth decay can be handled by dentists specialist prostodontia only or dentists conservation specialists Tooth alone or can even be treated by orthodontist specialists.
In fact, when a dentist undergoes his dentist education, they study and conduct action training in all cases. However, it is indeed a case within the limits of its competence, which is still classified as an ordinary case. However, if a person's dental problems are very complex and so severe, perhaps consultation and treatment by a specialist in this field is needed.
Regarding crown teeth a little, I will explain here, but you can read more information in this article. Dental crowns are one of the dental medical procedures performed by pairing a crown to replace a broken or damaged natural tooth. So in the teeth that are crowned, the upper part is dentures and the lower part is natural teeth. Crown installation is done if there are still parts of natural teeth that are still good and can be maintained as a place to attach the crown or dental jacket.
Thus hopefully useful.
