This case is a good example of simple dentistry done to save some teeth that otherwise might have needed to come out. I like this case because it demonstrates the use of fibre reinforced composites both as laboratory made crown (on the molar tooth) and as a direct restoration made in the mouth for the premolar. It also shows fibre posts made to fit the anatomical shape of the root so we can be a minimal as possible in our preparation of the root canal. The curved tip and proximity to the floor of the maxillary sinus made this a little bit more challenging than it might have been.
This is a very typical example of the work that I do and I love doing it because it saves the patient from the pain often associated with the sort of infection seen at the tip of the root; it gives great strength to the damaged teeth and great aesthetics whilst leaving as much sound tooth tissue as possible intact.
At StoneRock we believe treatment should be planned in this order- Health, Function, Beauty. This sort of work covers all three and gives the patient strong, healthy teeth that look and feel nice. It is a privilege to get to do this sort of work. If you would like to find out more about what we do and how we might help you then please call us on 01580 752202 and we will be happy to help.
