Photo Essay: Post-and-Core Technique for Endodontically Treated Teeth

Michael DiTolla, DDS, FAGD

article by Michael C. DiTolla, DDS, FAGD

Placing post and cores is not an everyday procedure for most dentists, yet I get a surprising number of emails from dentists asking which post-and-core system I prefer. Rather than limit myself to one system, I like to try out the various systems in the lab’s operatory. For the case that follows, I used the Rebilda® Post System (VOCO America Inc.; Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.) to restore an endodontically treated tooth #10 with severe decay. In addition to radiopaque, translucent fiberglass posts and corresponding burs, the system includes a dual-purpose cement/core buildup material and dual-cured, self-etch bonding agent. I was pleasantly surprised by the system’s completeness and ease of use.
