But restoration of the endodontically treated tooth is critical to long-term success. It does not matter if we can complete the endodontic portion of treatment if the tooth cannot be restored. With this in mind, we need to look at the restoration phase from an engineering perspective. What is needed to reinforce the remaining tooth so that it can manage the repetitive loading that occurs during mastication? This article will discuss the importance of ferrule in adhesive dentistry as well as when to use posts and what materials are best.
- Upon completion of the course, the clinician will be able to:
- Understand the importance of ferrule
- Understand when posts are needed and what materials to use
- Understand why marginal breakdown can occur with crowns
