Endodontic retreatment and rehabilitation of a mutilated mandibular molar using laser surface treated glass fiber post: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Moksha Nayak and Dr. Vidhya Shenoy
ABSTRACT:Microorganisms are the major cause of failure of endodontic treatment. Newer modalities of root canal disinfection have been researched of which LASER is one such advancement. Diode laser has been proven to completely eliminate microorganisms from root canal. Restoration of a mutilated tooth requires a post to aid in retention of the final restoration. The failure of fiber post occurs mainly due to loss of retention and subsequent debonding. Surface treatment of the fiber post using diode laser increases the surface roughness thus increasing the bonding of the fiber post with resin cement. This case report presents successful management of a mutilated mandibular molar following endodontic retreatment and rehabilitation using diode laser surface treated fiber post.
