Share Abstract:

Composite resin reinforcement of flared canals using light- transmitting plastic posts


Pages: 313-319
PMID: 7938415

Composite resins have been advocated as a reinforcing build-up material for badly damaged endodontically treated teeth with flared canals. However, the control of an autocuring composite resin is difficult because it polymerizes rapidly within the root canal. While the light-curing composite resins are more user friendly, their polymerization can be a problem deep in the root canal. Light-transmitting plastic posts allow the transmission of light into the root canal and enable intraradicular composite resin reconstitution and reinforcement of weakened roots. At the same time, the light-transmitting plastic post forms an optimal post canal in the rehabilitated root and can accurately fit a matching retentive final post. These light-transmitting posts are a useful addition to the dental armamentarium.
