Low crown applying pressure to adjacent tooth. Correct with root canal???

Hi.  I recently had a new crown on a back molar (last tooth #20) and it unfortunately was too low causing all of the biting pressure to come crashing down on the tooth next to it #19.  My dentist is suggesting a root canal a perfectly good tooth #19 to relieve the pain and pressure.  Does this make sense to anyone.  We've tried taking down the high spots on #19 but it hasn't helped.  Once again, does this make sense???  This is a very frustrating situation to be in.
