Abstract

PURPOSE: To describe the treatment of a patient with a dismal oral situation after successful cure for drug addiction.

METHODS: After root canal treatment and surgical pretreatment, four maxillary glass-fiber reinforced composite fixed partial dentures, anchored by endo-crowns instead of post and core, were fabricated (Targis & Vectris). Additionally, full crowns on four dental implants and an inlay were produced of non-reinforced composite (Targis). All restorations were luted adhesively to abutments with a three component adhesive system (Syntac Classic), light-curing composite (Tetric) and an ultrasonic insertion technique.

RESULTS: An esthetic and functional acceptable result was achieved. Excessive removal of tooth structure by post preparation may weaken the root.
