Adhesive post-endodontic restorations: research concepts translated to daily clinic scenarios

Materials used for restorations of endodontically treated teeth such as composites, cements and bonding systems have improved considerably over the last ten years. Nevertheless, shortcomings such as biocompatibility, premature bond reduction, interface and marginal degradation are still considered important issues that may increase the risk for root canal retreatments. The use of innovative therapeutic approaches able to “repair” fractures and gaps through remineralisation processes, might increase the survival rate of restorations performed in compromised clinical situations. Innovative “bioactive strategies” able to induce mineral deposition at the interface between materials and dental substrates or fibres-reinforced posts will be proposed as possible alternative to common “passive” restorative procedures.
