Post and core
This patient reported with complaint of dislodged crown and on examination, there was a ceramic crown in 13, which was loose but the margins were good.
The crown was removed and there was no core structure. The tooth was root treated which was evident from the radiograph. As an emergency management for esthetic reasons, a provisional post and crown was planned.
To temporize, polycarbonate crowns are selected and the facial and the lingual margins are checked for proper extensions and no gingival encroachment.
A provisional pin is selected.
The image shows the temporization with a provisional post and crown. The radiograph shows the pin extended in the canal that can give a satisfactory retention for the crown till a permanent post and crown is planned.
