Partial gold crown and preservation of dentin- Courtesy ROOTS

Subject: [roots]  partial gold crown and preservation of dentin

I think there is still place for gold crowns, in particular partial crowns 
on second molars. It's a nice tooth saving restoration, as opposed to the 
huge amount of dentin reduction that is necessary for a PFM crown.

The sinus tract appeared after the dentist had prepped the crown on 
tooth 17. He had the crown finished, and placed it temporarily.

2 weeks of Ca(OH)2 was not enough to let the sinus tract disappear completely, 
but I was pretty confident it would work out well, so I decided to finish. 
I made a BU of composite and cemented the crown definitively
Today I did the recall, it has healed up nicely - Marga

If we actually look at the characteristics of tooth structure, and then the characteristics of various restorative materials, and they try to match them as closely as possible, gold is the ONLY thing that comes close. If we could change itís shade, a lot of materials would go by the wayside. Beautiful molar. And I know you didnít do the bi. Gary
