Endodontic treatment is accompanied by the loss of a significant amount of tooth crowns, which leads to a significant decrease in their strength characteristics. The restoration of endodontically treated teeth, as a rule, is carried out by the direct method, however, a unified approach regarding direct or indirect restoration has not yet been determined.

The aim – retrospective analysis of the clinical condition of direct restorations of endodontically treated teeth.

Materials and methods. 284 patients aged 25 to 60 years were examined; they studied the state of 888 previously performed direct restorations of the anterior and posterior teeth after endodontic treatment in a period of 2 to 10 years. Restorations were evaluated according to the adapted clinical criteria “integrity of the restoration”, “marginal fit of the material”, “marginal staining”, “anatomical shape”, “colour correspondence for the restoration”, “roughness of the surface of the material”, as well as the criterion “condition of the contact point” for located on the contact surfaces of the teeth of the restorations.

Results. Of the 888 examined direct restorations, 760 restorations (85.6±1.18 %) were located in the posterior teeth, with 562 restorations in the molars (63.3±1.62 % of the total) and 198 in the premolars (22 , 3±1.40 %), and 128 restorations (14.4±1.18 %) were detected in the anterior teeth, while in the incisors - 80 restorations (9.0±0.96 %), in the fangs – 48 (3.5±0.76 %). 720 restorations (81.1±1.31 %) were made from photocomposite materials, 97 restorations (10.9±1.05 %) from chemical curing composites, 71 (8.0±0.91 %) from glass-ionomer cements . The most common violations were colour mismatch – in 511 restorations (57.5±1.66 %), marginal staining - in 470 restorations (52.9±1.68 %), surface roughness - in 357 restorations (40.2±1.0, 65 %). More often than others, in the reconstructions of their photocomposites and glass ionomers there was a colour mismatch, and surface roughness for chemical composites.

Conclusions. For direct tooth restoration after endodontic treatment in 81.1±1.31 % of cases, photocomposite materials are used, less often chemical curing composites and glass ionomers. Of the violations of such restorations, the most frequent are colour mismatch, surface roughness and edge staining.
