Endocrown - an option for rehabilitation of badly mutilated tooth: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Moksha Nayak and Dr. Angeline Jose
ABSTRACT:Rehabilitation of extensively damaged teeth is the most challenging task. Among the various options available to restore badly mutilated endodontically treated tooth, endocrowns represent a simple, conservative, and esthetic alternative to conventional crowns. Endocrown is a one‑piece restoration, usually indicated in cases with decreased crown height. The preparation comprises of “sidewalk” as the cervical margin and a preparation into the pulp chamber. These restorations are self cleansing, prevents interferences with periodontal tissues due to the presence of supragingival position of the margins, maintains natural contact and increases longevity of the tooth. The rationale of this technique is to use the surface area available in the pulpal chamber to achieve stability and retention through adhesive procedures. In this case report, a severely damaged mandibular molar was restored using an all ceramic Endocrown which served as a conservative and esthetic restorative alternative to full coverage crown.
