Modern Techniques in Post and Core

Modern Techniques in Post and Core
This hands-on course is designed for Dentists.

Course Overview

This hands-on course for dentists will cover the fundamental principles of post and core systems.

Endodontically treated teeth are vulnerable to failure through fracture and microbial leakage. The goal of treatment of pulpally involved teeth is to maintain function and aesthetics for as long as possible.

The post and core is a critical final step in endodontic treatment which has undergone many changes throughout the last few decades. Modern materials and techniques provide the opportunity to create a post and core that is strong, minimises stresses to the endodontically treated tooth, is aesthetic and well-retained.

The best endodontic treatment can fail through an insufficient restoration. The restorative planning needs to begin before the endodontic treatment is commenced. A decision tree will be presented for restorative options for endodontically treated teeth.

During the hands-on component of this course the participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Take a post space impression
  • Place a direct adhesive fibre post
  • Place a direct metal post
  • Make a direct pattern for a custom cast post
  • Trial cements for post, crowns and onlays


Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify the predictors of successful restorability in the pre-operative assessment
  • Recall the fracture mechanics in vital and endodontically treated teeth
  • Recall direct and indirect restorative techniques
  • Evaluate the options when selecting indirect materials 
  • Select appropriate core materials and techniques for their use
  • Assess when, why and how to use a post
  • Apply techniques to avoid procedural errors in post space preparations
  • Recall adhesive and conventional indirect restorative techniques
