Castelo-Baz, Pablo / Álvarez-Blázquez, María Freire / Rodríguez-Roca, Patricia / Barbieri-Petrelli, Germán / Lorenzo-Pouso, Alejandro / Martín-Biedma, Benjamín
Cusp fractures occur frequently in endodontically treated teeth with large restorations and no cusp protection. These fractures often lead to challenging clinical decisions, such as whether to undertake complex restorative management or extraction of the affected teeth. This article reports the surgical and restorative management of two teeth with fractures exceeding the biologic width to juxtacrestal and subcrestal levels, respectively, and describes a new technique for such treatment.
