Endocrown: Rebirth of mutilated tooth
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Masarat Mir and Dr. Rishi Manan
ABSTRACT:Restoration is necessary to make teeth that have undergone root canal therapy functioning once again. It is generally agreed upon that the typical objective for repairing teeth is minimally intrusive preparation to preserve the greatest amount of tooth structure. A straightforward, conservative, and aesthetically pleasing replacement for traditional crowns is an Endocrown. It is a single-piece restoration that is typically recommended in circumstances when the crown height has dropped. These restorations prolong the lifetime of the tooth, maintain natural contact, prevent interferences with periodontal tissues because of the supragingival edges, and are self-cleaning. The idea behind this method is to employ adhesive techniques to produce stability and retention by making advantage of the surface area present in the pulp chamber. An all-ceramic Endocrown was employed in the case study as a conservative and attractive substitute for a full coverage crown to treat a severely damaged mandibular molar.
