Restoration of multi-rooted endodontically treated teeth with two-piece dowel-core with separate cast and prefabricated dowels. Technique presentation – Case report.
MetadataShow full item record
Restoring the crown of severely damaged endodontically treated teeth, by using a post and core restoration, is a common procedure in the daily dental practice. For the restoration of teeth with multiple roots and root divergence, the reconstruction can be clinically achieved using a multiple piece dowel-core with separate dowels. The secondary post of this restoration can be either custom made or prefabricated. The technique using the prefabricated post is more simple and quick and is the one most widely used for restoring endodontically treated, multi-rooted teeth. The aim of this article is to describe explicitly this technique and present a clinical case of building up a core with a channel into which an accessory, prefabricated post will be cemented.
