Post-and-Core Restoration of Severely Damaged Permanent Posterior Teeth in Young Adolescents
Tickotsky, Nili / Petel, Roy / Haim, Yael / Ghrayeb, Maysa / Moskovitz, Moti
Purpose: This retrospective study evaluated the survival rates of postendodontic severely decayed posterior permanent teeth in young adolescents.
Materials and Methods: A total of 48 teeth (patient age range: 8.8-16.9 years) restored with a Kurer post-and-core system (Anchor System, Kurer K4) were assessed. Follow-up appointments 1 to 6 years posttreatment included radiographs and a clinical examination.
Results: A total of 5 teeth (10.4%) were extracted, and 13 restorations (27%) required repair. Average restoration-to-failure time was 27 months (SD 12.2 months).
Conclusion: In view of these findings, clinicians should consider post-and-core restorations an alternative to extractions of endodontically treated severely damaged teeth in adolescents.
