Great care should be taken in properly restoring molars that have undergone root resection surgery. Problems that can arise when reconstructive treatment is not correctly carried out comprise faulty retention, excessive weakening of root structure, incomplete marginal seal. Preprothesic surgery is a particularly important step of the process and although tissue repair occurs 6 to 8 weeks after coronoradicular resection, different types of prostheses can be evaluated according to the periodontal environment. The long-term prognosis for this type of restoration is uncertain. Clinical studies indicate that the main sources of failure are periodontal, endodontic, and biomechanical.
