Event synopsis

Endodontically-treated teeth with significant tooth structure loss have to be restored with a core as foundation which retains the final crown. Its success depends on the quality of endodontic treatment, shape of the canals, status of the remaining tooth structure and the periodontal support.  Traditionally, posts were always metal, and they were prefabricated or cast. However, this will possess esthetic issue with full ceramic restoration and higher root fracture incidence compared to fiber posts. The modulus of elasticity of fiber posts is similar to that of dentine, they are more biologically compatible with tooth tissue. In addition to that, they can be bonded to dentine.

This workshop will aim to demonstrate the steps needed to provide a predictable fiber post in endodontic treated tooth. Participants will need to prepare one extracted upper anterior tooth which has been endodontically treated and post-endo radiograph taken to provide the information for working length which simulate clinical scenarios. After the post-endo radiograph, the tooth can be mounted on dental stone to provide stability during post preparation.
