The effect of the distance between post and residual gutta-percha on the clinical outcome of endodontic treatment.

The effect of the distance between post and residual gutta-percha on the clinical outcome of... To determine whether the distance between the post and the residual gutta-percha influences the clinical outcome of endodontic treatment, 94 endodontically treated teeth following post and core restoration were evaluated radiographically. The teeth were divided into three groups: (I) no gap between the gutta-percha and the post; (II) a gap of >0 to 2 mm; (III) a gap of >2 mm. Treatment outcome was evaluated in follow-up radiographs, taken 1 yr after treatment and up to 5 yr posttreatment. In group I, 83.3% of the teeth were evaluated normal, 53.6% of group II, and only 29.4% of group III. A gap between the gutta-percha and the post was related to an increased rate of emerged disease in endodontically treated teeth restored with a post and core. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of endodontics Pubmed

Abstract

To determine whether the distance between the post and the residual gutta-percha influences the clinical outcome of endodontic treatment, 94 endodontically treated teeth following post and core restoration were evaluated radiographically. The teeth were divided into three groups: (I) no gap between the gutta-percha and the post; (II) a gap of >0 to 2 mm; (III) a gap of >2 mm. Treatment outcome was evaluated in follow-up radiographs, taken 1 yr after treatment and up to 5 yr posttreatment. In group I, 83.3% of the teeth were evaluated normal, 53.6% of group II, and only 29.4% of group III. A gap between the gutta-percha and the post was related to an increased rate of emerged disease in endodontically treated teeth restored with a post and core.
