WHAT IS A DENTAL POST AND CORE???

A dental post and core is a type of a restorative material that has been placed into the tooth only when the root canal is completed to provide support  for stabilization or strengthening the remaining  weak tooth structure.

CLINICAL CONDITIONS REQUIRING POST:

In case of front teeth having significant  damage such as

injured front tooth
fibre post
- proximal decay,
- loss of one third tooth portion,
- esthetically unacceptable reasons.


In case of back teeth
- having a little or no coronal tooth structure
- with increased risk of fracture .

The treatment requirement also based on
- the functional demands of the teeth,
- its importance in providing support to the adjacent prosthesis.
The post should serve the purpose of tooth structure preservation as well as retaining the  core build up

POST TYPES:

Based on the method of availability:
 prefabricated post
   -Metal post
 (made up of titanium ,stainless steel and nickel chromium )
   -Zirconia post
   -Fibre reinforced composite

WHAT WILL BE DONE IN POST AND CORE PROCEDURE?

The post and core treatment aims at strengthening the tooth , requires complete cleaning of root canals and RCT should be done one day prior   so that the next day involves the placement of post

Your Dentist will choose the  right type  of post based on the clinical condition of your teeth.
ADVANTAGE of placing the post  is
- provision of better retention and
-to strengthen the tooth structure

CORE MATERIAL:

Before receiving the crown a core should be done using a restorative material over the post .
Then the modification should be carried out to receive  a crown  similar     to tooth preparation as done in natural tooth
The core replaces the tooth structure that has been lost due to caries or fracture and retains the final crown in place .
