Definitive Solution to Tooth Loss!
Fibre post application, also known as post core, is a supportive treatment method for those with excessive loss of material in their teeth. It is a method that supports both the root and the upper part of the tooth and increases the durability of the tooth thanks to the structures placed inside the root after root canal treatment.
In which situations is fibre post applied?
Post-core can be produced from metal alloys in the laboratory as well as using ready-made root screws and composite filling materials. Thanks to fibre post application, material losses are prevented along with the strengthening of the tooth root.
Fibre post is applied for cases of irreversible damage to the teeth, teeth with periodontal problems that are not adequately supported by the jawbone and gingiva, caries that cannot be repaired with dental filling or teeth with material loss.
How to Apply Fibre Post?
If we ask how to apply fibre post, we can say that it is applied with support from the root canal. In the post-core application that reinforces the teeth with the placement of fibre sticks into the root canal, root canal treatment should be performed first. After the root canal treatment is completed, the canal and dental pulp are shaped by the dentist. The tooth is measured and sent to the laboratory for metal post and core production. The post-core is attached to the root and the remaining tooth tissue is shaped before the crown is placed on it.
