  • All endodontically treated teeth that were extracted over a 1-yr period in a busy group practice were evaluated for cause of failure. The 116 teeth collected were classified into major failure categories of prosthetic, periodontic, and endodontic origin. Of the teeth, 59.4% were prosthetic failures which were due primarily to crown fracture. Teeth that had been crowned had greater longevity than uncrowned teeth. Periodontal failures constituted 32% of the study. Only 8.6% of the failures were… CONTINUE READING
