The teeth with extensive coronal destructions due to carious process can be saved by using split cast post and core. This technique has been used for a long time and with positive results recognized by many authors. The clinical case presented here describes indirectly the reconstitution technique with split cast post and core with latch of a maxillary molar with divergent roots and extensive coronal destruction both in area and depth.

Cherubism is a familial benign fibro-osseous disease of the jaws. On radiography, the lesions exhibit bilateral multinuclear radiolucent areas. Histopathology reveals multinucleated giant cells in the background of proliferating fibrous connective tissue. Mutations in the SH3BP2 gene are identified as the cause of cherubism. A 12-year-old girl with prominence of the lower face was investigated. Her chief complaint was her facial appearance with asymmetrical swelling of the cheeks. Clinical and radiographic examinations, and biopsy, biochemical analysis and genetic investigations were performed.
