Corono-radicular biological restoration of maxillary central incisors by direct method

Sonia Aggarwal, Sujit Ranjan Sahoo, Kartik Pandharkar


This case report refers to the esthetic and functional restorations of extensively damaged maxillary
central incisors with dental caries in a 32-year-old woman, with the use of posts and crowns
made from natural extracted teeth. Proper restoration of such teeth with the use of natural teeth fragments are known as “biological restoration.” Biological restorations can be done by using the fragments of the patients own tooth and if that is not available, tooth fragment can be obtained from an extracted tooth. These biological posts and crowns present a low cost option and an alternative technique for the morphofunctional recovery of extensively damaged teeth. There are limitations with the use of natural extracted teeth (homogenous bonding) for restoration such as
the diffi culty of fi nding teeth with a similar color and shape as that of the destroyed element, or patient may refuse to accept a tooth fragment from another patient, which prevents execution of the restoration.
Key Words: Biological restoration, extracted teeth, teeth fragment
