Bottom Line: The restorations were evaluated using the modified United State Public Health Service (USPHS) criteria.The results were statistically analyzed by descriptive -analytical tests.The sectioned file post technique showed good retention and aesthetics for restoring severely damaged primary maxillary anterior teeth.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: Caries and dental trauma are common reasons for primary anterior teeth restorations in children. This non-control clinical trial was designed to evaluate crown restorations reinforced with a sectioned file post for the restoration of severely damaged primary maxillary incisors.

Materials and methods: Thirty-eight primary maxillary incisors of 12 children (3-5 years old) with early childhood caries (ECC) received composite restorations with a custom made post. The restorations were evaluated using the modified United State Public Health Service (USPHS) criteria. The results were statistically analyzed by descriptive -analytical tests.

Results: In this trial, the quality of marginal adaptation decreased after three and 12 months intervals. Recurrent carious lesions were observed during intervals. In terms of restoration retention, only one patient lost both the post and the restoration at the 12-month follow up.

Conclusion: The sectioned file post technique showed good retention and aesthetics for restoring severely damaged primary maxillary anterior teeth.

Mentions: Due to extensive crown damage, it was necessary to use intracanal posts. Thus, at the second appointment, about 2 mm of the cement was removed from one-third of the coronal part of the canal. Next, a custom made post was fabricated using a 4 mm K-file (K-file, Mani, Tokyo, Japan) (Figure 2a); it was the largest file which was retained in the canal, and was then sectioned and inserted into the canal, so that the incisal end of the sectioned K-file projected 2 mm above the CEJ. This K-file post was selected because it provided optimal mechanical retention and support for the restorative material. Shade selection of the composite was made during the daylight hours.
