FROM ENDO TO FINAL RESTORATION WITH DIGITAL SUPPORT
Modern endo-restorative offers great opportunities in term of simplicity and predictability of results.
The complete workflow can be followed by digital support starting with the diagnosis to end with the final restoration.
New era of endodontics is more simple, fast and reliable but most importantly gives the chance of leaving more residual structure.
Endodontic instruments are constantly monitored for stress and therefore reducing chances for failure.
Obturation devices are simple and rapid and the restoration will follow after.
Once the tooth is then properly restored digital development of final restoration can take place, when needed, using a wide range of materials: composites, hybrids, ceramics and zirconia and that procedure can also be done sometimes chairside.
Final objective of the endodontic treatment is to create a new system that may be able to work properly for the designed function as long as possible after the treatment is completed.
