Indication to the type of restoration

The tooth as a house

Introduction Teeth that require endodontic treatment are often severely broken down and can be vulnerable to fracture; they often require extensive (and expensive) restoration following root canal treatment.  A high fracture rate has been found in root-filled teeth that have mesial Occlusal distal (MOD) amalgam restorations, restorations, and it is often good practice to place some form of cusp coverage restoration to prevent destructive flexure during mastication.

treatment planning 


endodontically treated teeth need to be assessed care-fully for the following:

Good apical seal

No sensitivity to pressure

No exudate

No fistula

No apical sensitivity

No active inflammation

Considerations for anterior teeth  Anterior teeth do not always need complete coverage, except when plastic restorative materials would would have limited prognosis in view of the extent of coronal destruction. Many function with composite resin restoration restorations. s. when the tooth is loaded, stresses are greatest at the facial and lingual surfaces of the root and an internal post, being only minimally stressed, does not help prevent fracture

metal--ceramic metal -ceramic crowns Metal-ceramic crowns are very strong and resist occlusal loads well. Minimal preparation preparat ion (0.5 mm) mm ) is required on the palatal pala tal and and approx approximal imal surfa surfaces. ces. This may may be beneficial in a root-filled tooth with little remaining coronal tooth substance

metal--free metal -free crowns -porcelai - porcelai porcelain jacket crown Porcelain jacket crowns require a buccal tooth reduction of between 0.8 and 1.3 mm, and can therefore be more conservative on tooth substance than a metal-ceramic m etal-ceramic crown. Stained dentine and metal posts affect the aesthetic appearance of a porcelain jacket crown. Excessive occlusal loading may be a problem and can result in unpredictable fracture.

Mesio esio--occlusal -occlusal


Plastic Restorative Tech niques The best method of restoring a root-treated tooth with an existing proximal box depends on the size and depth of the box and on the occlusal stresses that are applied during mastication. In a case with a shallow box and no evidence of occlusal loading, an amalgam restoration could be used

conservative cuspal coverage restorations  A bevelled margin of I mm m m depth is prepared around the circumference of the tooth. Base metal alloys can be bonded to the etched occlusal surface of the tooth using a silane bonding system.


retention will be provided

by the internal contours of the access cavity, the majority of which is packed with IRM.



The cusps are reduced in height and the entire occlusal surface is rebuilt in amalgam. am algam. The technique is technically demanding since the correct occlusal contacts are difficult to achieve, and the material must be thick enough to withstand withstan d occlusal forces (2-3 mm). mm ). Direct light cured composite materials are not really suitable for use in this situation, and indirect composite or porcelain restorations

Cast restorations Cast If a metal-ceramic crown is required required,, significantly more tooth substance will need to be removed (at least 1-1.5 mm). mm) . The clinician needs to be sure that sufficient tooth substance will remain after preparation for retention of the restoration to avoid an unnecessarily weakened tooth.

Core Materials - Amal Amalgam It is strong and easy to use. Added retention can be gained by packing the amalgam into irregularities and undercuts in the pulp chamber and by using grooves, slots and pits in the cavity walls. Self-tapping dentine pins are rarely needed, and they may impart unwanted stresses within the dentine.

The N Nayyar  ayy ay yar core cor oree The Nayy Nayyar ar core is a usefu usefull means of of restoring restoring a molar tooth after root treatment when there is sufficient remaining tooth substance to support the core. Amalgam is packed into the root canals to a depth of approximately 3 mm and into the pulp chamber to give mechanical retention. An adhesive can be used to give extra retention

Composite Composite cores have the advantage that they can be built up and prepared at the same visit. Chemically activated materials m aterials such as Ti Core, have been shown to perform well. There is some concern in the literature that there may be risk of microleakage m icroleakage between the composite core and dentine

Cermets  Although  Althoug h cermet cermets s have bee been n recommended recommen ded as core materi materials als they they are are not as durable as amalgam or composite. Cermets Cermet s are easy to use and bond bond to to tooth substance. They should not be used when strength is required, but they could be used as a space filler to reduce the amount of alloy required in a cast restoration

Crowns for Posterior Teeth Cast

Metal Crowns

High noble metal alloys are considered to be best since they have the greatest resistance to corrosion and tarnishing and are easy to work with. Metal crowns are excellent in situations where the patient is not concerned with the appearance of metal.


reduction in the tooth is required



Cast Metal Crowns

Partial cast metal crowns may be used when the buccal surface of the tooth is intact. They are more conservative of tooth tissue than complete crowns, but they are more demanding technically both for clinician and in the laboratory


Cast Metal Crowns

The preparation preparation for a full cast metal crown is more conservative than for a metal m etal ceramic crown (0.5-1.0 mm compared with 1.0-2.0 mm).

etal-Ceramic -Ceramic Metal-


Metal-ceramic Metal-cera mic crowns c rowns are generally used when a patient requires a more aesthetic restoration. Porcelain can be used on the visible surfaces, such as the buccal and occlusal surfaces of mandibular teeth. If the clinical crown height is small, then retention grooves are cut in the core to provide added retention

Ceramic Crowns Occasionally it is reasonable to use a castable casta ble or high-stre high-strengt ngth h ceramic crown crown on on a posterior tooth, if occlusal factors are not inhibitive. The amount of tooth reduction is more than with a metal-ceramic crown (occlusal reduction reduction of 2 mm) and may m ay compromise retention, retention, especially in teeth with a short crown height

The R ole ole of Posts in the R estoratio estoration of Endodontica tically lly Treate Treated d Teet Teeth h The primary purpose for a post is to retain a core that can be used to support the final restoration. Posts do not reinforce endodontically treated teeth, and a post is not necessary when substantial tooth structure is present after a tooth has been prepared.

CAT TIO NS I NDICA Post placement is indicated if  both of the following clinical conditions exist: 

The remaining coronal tooth structure is inadequate for the retention of a restoration.

When there is sufficient root length to accommodate the post while maintaining an adequate apical seal.

Ideal tooth prepar preparatio ation for post  placement

Ferrule Effect The ferrule is the circumferential ring of  sound tooth structure that is enveloped by the cervical portion of the crown restoration. A minimum sound dentine height of 1.5-2 mm is required between the core and crown margins.
