De coronale afsluiting: een directe of indirecte restauratie?

Translated title of the contribution: Post-endodontic restoration: a direct or indirect restoration?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


When restoring an endodontically treated tooth, it is important to preserve the pericervical dentin so it is resistant especially to lateral forces occurring during mastication. When little pericervical dentin is seen to be present, an adhesive restoration is indicated. Tooth survival of endodontically treated teeth restored with adhesive direct and indirect restorations varies between 90.5% and 95.0% after 5 years. Deciding between a direct or an indirect restoration depends above all on the possibility to predictably restore the anatomy and on gloss retention. Because endodontically treated teeth are vulnerable to lateral forces, control of these forces after direct or indirect restoration is important. This can be achieved by a reduction in the steepness of the cuspal slope and/or by covering the cusps with the restorative material.
