  • Periodontal lesion or weakning of tooth

3. Chemical injury

  • Caries
  • Erosive lesions

Symptoms

  • 1. Throbbing pain: could be felt during taking hot or cold beverages or while consumption of sweet food.
  • 2. Infection:in form of swelling in mouth or abscess with pus discharge from sinus tract
  • 3. Periodontal abscess:in form of swelling around gum

Necessity of treatment

  • To get rid of pain
  • To eliminate infection
  • To restore back tooth functionability

Not choosing the root canal treatment can lead to

  • Severe pain & discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Loss of tooth

Post & Core

This treatment is done in a root canal treated tooth ( though not necessary in every case) where there is not enough tooth structure present. A post is inserted after removal of the root canal filling, up to 2/3 length of the root. After that a filling is done over it.

Indications

RCT treated tooth in which it is deemed necessary to improve

  • Longevity of restoration
  • Enhance prognosis and function of tooth restoration and crown
  • Protect the tooth from fracture
  • Provide anchorage to coronal restoration and crown
  • In case of weak tooth structure
  • In case of heavy occlusal forces

material choice

1. Prefabricated fiber post:

  • it has better tensile strength
  • good adhesion with root dentin
  • better aesthetic

2. Metal post

  • Rarely used now a days because of poor esthetic and size
