Abstract

Endodontic treatment, when performed with proper instrumentation, canal disinfection, and obturation can be a tremendous service to a dental patient and a key component of any restorative practice. It can be complicated by factors such as poor diagnosis, incomplete canal debridement, ineffective obturation, bacterial invasion, and insufficient restorative treatment. Retreatment or even tooth loss can occur when the canal space is not handled properly. This article demonstrates a procedure for the correction of pre-existing obturation and subsequent treatment with an all-ceramic restoration in a single visit.
