Supraeruption or over eruption of tooth/teeth is defined as movement of a tooth or teeth above the normal occlusal plane (GPT 8). Supra erupted teeth cause many problems. Occlusal plane disruption can result in improper distribution of occlusal force resulting in trauma from occlusion due to inevitable occlusal prematurities that exist in dentition. Food lodgement and eventual proximal caries is also noted. Smooth mandibular movements are disturbed resulting in temporomandibular joint disorders. Hence it is important to restore the supra erupted teeth back to the optimal occlusal plane. Many treatments have been proposed to correct the supra eruption of teeth. Treatment modalities vary depending on the amount of supra eruption. Treatment options like orthodontic intrusion and coronoplasty of the supra erupted teeth is more often used for teeth with minimal supra eruption. Intentional endodontic treatment of the severely supra erupted teeth is indicated to restore the tooth back to the optimal occlusal plane. With the advent of newer all ceramic technology and adhesive techniques, the approach to restoring endodontically treated teeth is changing.
This article describes application of endocrown, (bonded one piece all ceramic restoration), advantages disadvantages in managing a severely supra erupted molar using a case report.
