I have had a biodentine put on a deep cavity, close to the root, a month a ago. It has chipped off at sides twice already that required fillings to seal the gaps. Should I consider taking biodentine out completely and having root canal treatment? thank you
As the name suggests biodentine is a dentine replacement material and is indicated for use in deep cavities to calm an inflamed nerve
Once it has been confirmed that the nerve can be saved (avoiding a root filling) the Biodentine can be cut back to allow a more durable filling or crown to be placed
