WHY CHOOSE FIBER OVER METAL?

Fiber Posts are much Closer to Human Dentin

Fiber posts exhibit physical properties that are much closer to human dentin than any metal. As a result, they virtually eliminate the risk of rot fracture.



Monobloc Restoration

Fiber posts provide a monobloc restoration. In other words, the post bonds to the resin cement and the resin cement bonds to dentin. All Biolight posts are made from UDMA resin and will both chemically and mechanically bond to all resin cements used today. In addition, Biolight DUAL posts have a unique micro-roughened surface for superior adhesion.

More Esthetic

Fiber posts are esthetic. The material used to make Biolight posts blend in with the natural tooth colored restorations.

Transmit Light

Fiber posts transmit light to start the polymerization process. Fiber posts must be placed with either dual-cure or self-cure resin cements. If using a dual-cure resin cement, the curing process is expedited, and holds the post in place while the self-cure process completes itself.

Anatomically Shaped

Fiber posts can be anatomically shaped for maximum clinical success. Since fiber posts do not cause root fractures, they can be designed and shaped to meet ideal anatomical demands - smaller apical portion, wider coronal support, taper design, etc.



Possibility of Retreatment

Fiber post failures are non catastrophic and are repairable. Generally in the case of post and core failure using fiber posts, the post will either break or de-bond. A metal post failure will often include a root fracture and will require extraction.
