Endodontic therapy is not complete until a final coronal restoration has been performed. A number of research papers have demonstrated that success rates fall dramatically the longer the delay between completion of the obturation and the final rebuilding of the crown. The ultimate restoration must return the tooth to function, protect the underlying tooth structure and have the proper aesthetics. This workshop will review the various factors associated with choosing between direct and indirect restorations, and will then focus on direct restorations. The methods and materials will be discussed and demonstrated.
- Understand the role of a post as well as when and when not to place one in the root canal treated tooth
- Know how to cement a post into a root canal
- Understand and apply a simplified workflow for the restoration of an endodontically treated tooth
