Prevent tooth stress and fractures
The physical properties of Core-Post are matched with tooth structure and designed to flex with teeth under normal conditions. Eliminate tooth stress and fractures that can occur with standard metal posts. Carbon fiber posts and glass fiber posts are available in 5 diameters: 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.7 and 2.0 mm.
Reviewed by the dental advisor 88% of the consultants rated Core-Post as good as, or better than, the product they were currently using. The clinicians also highly rated the ease of cutting the posts to the proper length and the ease of placing and cementing the posts when using Core Paste Syringeable.
Single tooth post restoration

Exceptional physical properties
Physiochemical compatibility between, post, cement, dentin, and core
Easy to use and cut
Available in carbon fiber for added posterior strength, or glass fiber for anterior esthetics
What is a Core-Post?
A post that flexes like natural tooth structure used in core build-up when needed or for added strength.
Why use Core-Posts?
The Core Post was designed to flex with teeth under normal conditions, thus eliminating tooth stress and fractures that can occur with a standard metal post. They have nearly identical coefficient of thermal expansion and modulus of elasticity to dentin, which allows them to exhibit such ideal physical characteristics.
How do I know when to use the Carbon Fiber Posts versus the Glass Fiber Posts?
Select glass-fiber posts for anterior teeth where esthetics are paramount and a tooth-colored core is needed. The low modulus of elasticity is similar to dentin and allows for flexure without root fracture. Carbon-fiber posts have an increased strength and modulus of elasticity that allow their use in select posterior as well as anterior cases.
Are Core-Posts radiopaque?
Yes. Core-Posts are visible on radiographs.
How are Core Posts available?
Core Posts are available in glass or carbon fiber posts, each of which is available in the following sizes: 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.7, and 2.0mm. Core Posts are sold in a value kit (50 posts), and in a single vial kit (10 posts) of one size per kit. There is also an Intro Kit available, which contains 2 carbon posts (1mm and 1.5mm) and 2 glass posts (1mm and 1.5mm).
What types of awards has Core-Post received?
88% of THE DENTAL ADVISOR consultants rated Core-Post as good as, or better, than the post system they are using. It was awarded the highest rating from THE DENTAL ADVISOR.
