The longevity of a post core system depend highly on how well they adhere together whether between the post and core, post and tooth, core and tooth or between the post- core and the coronal restoration. These are restorative dental materials place in the root of a structurally damage tooth to provide adequate retention for the core and coronal restoration. when insufficient crown tissue is left on a vital tooth to accommodate placement of a core (to support a crown), elective root treatment may be undertaken to allow for placement of an intra- radicular post. It is obvious the post core system adhesion is an important factor to consider when embarking on such treatment procedure to ensure longevity of the treatment.
A post and core crown is a type of dental restoration required where there is an inadequate amount of sound tooth tissue remaining to retain a conventional crown. A post is cemented into a prepared root canal, which retains a core restoration, which retains the final crown.
