Abstract

Endocrown: An Alternative Modality to Resort Extensively Damaged Molars: A Case Report

Monika Tandan, Divyangana Madaan*, Akshat Sachdeva

Teeth that undergo root canal therapy require some form of restoration to enable them to be functional again. Minimally invasive preparation to preserve maximum amount of tooth structure is considered to be the standard goal for restoring teeth. Endocrowns represent a simple, conservative, and esthetic alternative to conventional crowns. It is a one – piece restoration, usually indicated in cases with decreased crown height. These restorations are self-cleansing, prevent interferences with periodontal tissues due to the supragingival margins, maintain natural contact and increase longevity of the tooth. The rationale of this technique is to use the surface area available in the pulp chamber to achieve stability and retention through adhesive techniques. In this case report, a severely damaged mandibular molar was restored using an all ceramic Endocrown which served as a conservative and esthetic restorative alternative to full coverage crown.
