Post & Cores

Post and core crown is a type of dental restoration required when there is an adequate amount of sound tooth tissue remaining to retain a normal crown. A post is cemented into a prepared root canal which retains a core restoration and that retains the final crown. Posts are commonly required for anterior teeth rather than posterior teeth. A post and core is indicated when a large part of a tooth’s original crown structure has been lost. It is not indicated in cases where there is intense pain, gingival bleeding, suppuration, infections, tooth abscess, mobile tooth and when the crown is severely damaged with the remaining part of the tooth being not strong enough to support the post.
