 Associazione Amici di Brugg - Odontoiatria - n. 2 2002 - Effetto ferula? Sì, ma non a qualunque costo
Furono Eismann e Radke nel 1987 a usare il termine "effetto ferula" per indicare questo anello di metallo fuso circondante a 360° il dente e a raccomandare l'estensione della corona finale sulla struttura dentale sana per almeno 2 mm apicalmente alla giunzione moncone artificiale/dente.
Libman e Nicholls (Int J Prosthodont 1995; 8: 155-61) hanno riportato in una ricerca su incisivi superiori estratti e ricostruiti con perni fusi un'aumentata resistenza al fallimento per fatica, derivante da cicli di carico, del cemento di corone i cui margini si estendevano almeno 1,5 mm apicalmente al moncone artificiale.
Se la ferula è assente o molto ridotta si può avere una flessione del perno e del moncone con frattura del cemento della corona, donde infiltrazione e poi carie, che può arrivare fino a una sostanziale distruzione della struttura dentale.
