I have seen many endodontist and other general practioners disoccluding the tooth which is undergoing endodontic treatment. Is it necessary to disocclud the tooth and at what phase of endodontic treatment should the tooth be disoccluded and reason for it. Thank you..

In reply to yash shah Yes. The tooth is taken out of occlusion immediately after endo when a conventional down, an endocrown, or an onlay is indicated. This helps reduce post operative pain as the tooth is often raised in the socket due to immediate inflammation post endo that causes it to be in hyper occlusion. Once the inflammation is resolved and a new crown is made, the tooth is restored back into normal occlusion. It's important to keep the tooth in normal occlusion in your final restoration as these small change in over all occlusion have long term consequences across the arch.
