Restoration of root canal treated teeth
Following a root canal treatment teeth will often require some form of restoration to give functional and aesthetic results. These restorations will involve the use of one or all of Posts, Cores and Crowns.
Posts are used to retain a core structure that can be used in the final restoration. The post size and length will be decided by your experienced dentist. Cores of treated teeth may be used is they exist and that is if the structures of the tooth are undamaged.
Once the root canal treatment is finished, the canals will be filled and the opening that leads to the canal is restored with a filling that is likely to be glass ionomer. The crown of the tooth is restored with or without a post depending on the case and as the dentist sees fit. An impression will be taken and a crown made to give you a perfect fit for amazing functionality, durability and aesthetics.
