pulling wisdom teeth after rootcanal 16 to save 15

I am going to get my wisdom tooth pulled to see if it will allow the gum line to expose enough tooth for a crown
15 was cracked and i left it alone for a while decay was bad and after consult with endo he told me that he would have to see if he could find the canals--he did and root canal was painless and complete--everyone in the office has been great--The only thing i am worried about now is that i had the root canal and the dentist said to be careful not to crack the tooth --i am just worried that the root canal has weakened the tooth and it might crack during the removal of the wisdom tooth--is there anything that should be done before to make sure this doesn't happen.
