CAP of #35 (13). Cast post and double crown deny coronal access. Surgery is the correct way to try to save the tooth. Retrofilling with MTA

I know what some people think – mental nerve, too much risk, open margins, it’s just for a while. Please let me disagree with you. There is no way to save this tooth with conventional means non surgical endodontics. Surgical approach should became routine for every one who calls himself endodontist. This is just one more step to be more relevant clinician. Just my opinion
