Great question! I would recommend holding off on getting your crowns until after your braces are off. It is important to have your teeth in alignment and your bite correct first. After your root canal, your dentist will place a permanent restoration until you are finished with orthodontic treatment. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
