I-1 The Coronal Conundrum: The Biomimetic Solution to Restorative Endodontics

4.88 (8 votes)

CE Hours: 1.5

Description: What is the silent killer of most Endodontic treatment? Coronal leakage. Endontically treated teeth are the most structurally compromised and susceptible to fracture and decay. Common restorative techniques fail to regain the biomechanics and structural integrity lost during treatment cycles. Crowns and fillings allow for microleakage and reactivation of decay & reinfection of root canal treated teeth. Can additional tooth structure be preserved? Can microgaps under restorations be prevented? Can vital teeth with deep carious lesions be predictably sealed to maintain pulpal health? Yes, through stress reduction & Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry. Biomimetic dentistry uses the intact tooth as the ultimate guide in reconstruction. Combining tooth conservation, stress reduction and advanced adhesive dentistry solves the coronal conundrum of gaps, cracks and leakage.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Obtain complete caries removal in the Peripheral Seal Zone and read the Hierarchy of Bondability in the Central Stop Zone in deep carious lesions
  • Explain polymerization dynamics and C-Factor control to maintain coronal seal, through Layering, Fiber placement, and curing protocols
  • Describe the Bio-Rim Preservation and regaining structural integrity through a non mechanically retained approach
