Endodontic treatment of the teeth is now a common procedure across all age groups, either as a result of caries or as a result of trauma. Furthermore, as the number of adults undergoing orthodontic treatment increases, the number of orthodontic patients presenting with root-filled teeth is on the rise. Trauma is the most common cause of pulp necrosis and loss of vitality. Sometimes, adult patients may present to the clinic with grossly decayed teeth or severely traumatized teeth which often require endodontic treatment, followed by placement of prosthetic crown before orthodontic treatment. There is no consensus regarding timing of root canal treatment, extension of root end filling material, material selection for crown placement, and cement used for crown cementation. There is no well-defined protocol for such cases. Here, in this article, we present well-defined guidelines for endodontic-prosthodontic-orthodontic patients so that we can provide better care to patients with less ambiguity about the role of different specialties.
