I had a root canal at 15 followed by metal cap. Cap has busted into canal hole! I'm 30 now, can I fix it from home?

I would not recommend attempting dentistry at home. It's great that you got 15 years of wear from your crown, but it's time for a new crown. I tell my patients to expect 20+ with the crowns I do, but 15 years is not bad at all. I would recommend seeing your dentist a soon as possible to have this issue addressed. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
