Application of hollow posts for prosthetic provisionalisation and pre-endodontic build-up of severely destructed teeth
The following article presents the utilization of hollow posts as a treatment alternative for teeth with severe hard tissue loss that need an endodontic therapy and therefore a reliable pre-endodontic build-up and prosthetic provisionalisation. Often dentists confront a clinical situation where teeth with not enough ferrule are to be endodontically treated before crown lengthening procedure or orthodontic extrusion and in consequence they have to have a sound build-up preventing leakage. The application of hollow posts offers predictable treatment results and in some cases it might be the only procedure possible preventing tooth extraction.
