No Crown Root Canals
Not all root canals require a new porcelain or gold crown to seal off the treated tooth.
Direct Pulp Capping enables the dentist or endodontist to seal off the immediate treatment area with plastic membrane to ward off bacteria. This assumes that pulp tissue is healthy and does not require removal.
Tooth colored composite resin material is used to fill in the remaining void in the upper tooth structure which completes the seal.
