Direct composite crown with LuxaCrown
A 63-year old male patient came to our practice complaining about pain on tooth 46. According to symptoms and clinical findings, a root canal treatment was necessary. Our first step, before removing the pre-existing crown, was to take an impression with an A-silicon (DMG A-silicon StatusBlue) in order to be able to immediately deliver a temporary crown to the patient.
The abutment was prepared for a new complete crown.
DMG LuxaCrown was injected into the silicon impression, that was repositioned in the mouth after isolating the abutment with vaseline.
A long-term temporary material can be the perfect solution in a case with uncertain prognosis. It allows both clinician and patient to be quite and confident in waiting for several month (or even more) before starting the workflow for the final crown.
