Post & Core – Colorado Springs

Post & Core: An Essential And Time-Proven Procedure

What Are A Post And Core?

If a large enough portion of a tooth is missing, whether because of a cavity, the loss of a filling, or the access cavity from root canal work, a restorative dentist can’t simply place a crown on the tooth, because it won’t be stable enough. This is where a core comes in, replacing the missing tooth structure and providing support for the new crown. Sometimes the core is enough, but if not, a post may be added to anchor the core to the tooth.

Material Matters With Core And Post Treatment

The materials the core and particularly the post are made to have a major impact on whether or not the tooth will remain stable. Clinical evidence shows that metal posts don’t do much to stabilize the tooth and may lead to fractures, whereas complications from fiber-reinforced posts are rare because the material distributes the stress to the surrounding tissues in a similar way to natural dentin.
