Endocrown-A Unique Way of Retention-Case Report
Journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research,
All the teeth that have undergone root canal therapy require some form of restoration to enable them to function again. Endodontic treatment removes the vital contents of the canal, which subsequently leads to reduction in elasticity, desiccation and increases brittleness of remaining tooth structure.
The loss of structural integrity increases the incidence of crown fractures and microlekage at the margins of restoration in endodontically treated teeth compared with ‘vital’ teeth. Minimally invasive preparation to preserve maximum amount of tooth structure is considered to be the standard main goal for restoring teeth.
This is a case of endodontically treated right maxillary 1st molar requiring post endodontic management which was treated with EndoCrown.
