Intra-Radicular Rehabilitation Of Weakened Anterior Root - A Case Report
The thin-walled roots of the anterior teeth with wide flared canal spaces, requiring restoration, are at a high risk of getting fractured if they are traditionally restored by using conventional cast metal post-cores. Such root canals can be reinforced by using materials which are capable of bonding to the dentinal tooth structure within the root canal, thus enabling the defective endodontically treated root which is capable of supporting a post and core. Such adhesive materials create a potential for the reconstitution and rehabilitation of the lost dentinal tissue in order to save and ensure the continued function of the badly damaged tooth, which otherwise would have been extracted. This case report describes a case where GIC TYPE 9 was used as intra-radicular reinforcement material.
