Abstract

Rehabilitation of endodontically treated molar still remains a challenge. After endodontic treatment, molars lost their mechanical characteristics. In fact, they became fragile and that is in relation with the removal of pulp and surrounding dentin tissues. Endocrown which is a single partial restoration could be considered as a good alternative for restoring molars having large coronal destruction and presenting endodontic treatment difficulties. Through this work, we discuss the indication and use of endocrown to replace single crowns with intraradicular retention and to present a clinical case report of an endocrown-type restoration, fabricated from lithium disilicate ceramic (IPS e.Max CAD) in a mandibular first molar with extensive coronal destruction.
