The dentin-root complex: anatomic and biologic considerations in restoring endodontically treated teeth.

Author information

Department of Endodontics, Baylor College of Dentistry, Dallas, Tex.


The restoration of endodontically treated teeth has been the focus of considerable controversy and empiricism. Time-tested methods have been highly successful in some respects, but failures are still apparent. The inherent causes of failure are rarely evaluated and the limitations of specific restorative systems are seldom identified. Regardless of the system, there should be a thorough understanding of the anatomy and biology of the dentin and root supporting the restoration on the part of the practitioner, because both endodontic and restorative procedures alter the hard tissues.
