Relationships between root canal treatment and final restoration: esthetic connections.
Contemporary endodontic concepts and techniques, along with modern diagnostic tools, allow the clinicians to perform more predictable endodontic treatments. Adhesive techniques, connected with 3D diagnosis, new access cavity design, rotary/reciprocating NiTi instruments, and much more, can lead towards new treatment protocols, focused at the preservation of healthy tooth tissue. Preservation of sound dentin can be the key for the functional and aesthetic restoration of endodontically treated teeth, maintaining predictability, respect of periodontal tissues, and improved prognosis with less aggressive techniques.
Today with the new tools available, with the possibilities offered by new materials and especially with improved adhesive techniques, there is a common goal that binds Endodontics, Reconstruction and the prosthesis: the saving of healthy tooth tissue.
Endodontics instruments rotary nickel-titanium allow you to program the removal of root canal dentin, which thanks to the evolution of adhesive systems can be almost fully preserved even during reconstruction.
In this regard, the functional and aesthetic restoration of endodontically treated teeth, now you can do it, while maintaining adequate reliability, even with less aggressive and more respectful of dentin and periodontal.
