DENTAL POST & CORE

If the support of tooth is less, because of caries or fractured tooth surface,then tooth gets weaken even after root canal treatment.

So additional support is required to increase longevity of tooth.For this,post n core is done after completion of root canal treatment.In this,we remove almost 2/3rd part of root canal filling material that is gutta purcha,n shape it to receive small pin.After cementing the pin inside the canal,upper cavity is filled with core built up material..n over that crown is cemented.
