Endocrown: Reconstructing the molar

AUTHOR(S): Deepa Mukkai Krishnamurthy, Rajeev Singh, Padmapriya Puppala and Gaurang Mistry
ABSTRACT:Endodontically treated molar which is weakened by removal of carious tooth structure and access cavity preparation, is generally reinforced using post and core treatment modality. Studies have shown that this further weakens the tooth as it requires removal of more tooth structure. Endocrown, is a more viable available since the advent of adhesive bonding in dentistry. A less extensive tooth preparation and monobloc prosthesis that can be bonded to remaining tooth structure, makes it superior to conventional methods. The improved stress distribution in this prosthesis imparts better fracture resistance thereby reducing failure rates.
