In the current stage, the long-time preservation of a tooth on the arch must be the major aim of the dentist, when the therapeutic arsenal in endodontic therapy has developed greatly. When there is extensive coronary destruction of an endodontically treated tooth, corono-radicular reconstructions are a therapeutic option to restore tooth morphology.
For this purpose, the metal root pivots, the non-metallic prefabricated pivots, made of composite resin reinforced with carbon fibers, glass and the dental ceramic pivots are used. The choice of the most suitable pivot type is made knowing the advantages and disadvantages of each type and their adaptation to the requirements of each clinical case.
Particularly important are the therapeutic decisions related to the type of final prosthetic restoration, according to the particularity of each clinical case, the criteria of aesthetic or functional exigency, as well as local, loco-regional or general clinical-biological indications.
