Some Disturbing Trends in the Restoration of the Endodontically Treated Tooth
New digital technologies have been enthusiastically embraced by the profession. This is especially so in restorative techniques with CAD/CAM design and manufacture of restorations. In addition, new materials and protocols have facilitated “minimal intervention” concepts in tooth restoration. But has embracing these advances resulted in less prudent biomechanical considerations in restoration of the endodontically treated tooth? Are the concepts of ferrule and resistance form still important? Is “out with the old and in with the new” always appropriate?
