    • • PRINCIPLES OF TOOTH PREPARATION www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education www.indiandentalacademy.com www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • 1. CONSERVATION OF TOOTH STRUCTURE www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • A) Preparation of the canal: • When creating post space remove only minimal tooth structure form canal. • Excessive enlargement can: • Perforate • Weaken the root tooth may split during cementation of post or during subsequent function. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Pic of split root due to post www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • The thickness of the remaining dentin is the prime variable in fracture resistance of the root. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • ???? • Hunter et al (JPD 1989:62;166) did a invitro study and concluded that teeth with a thicker post (1.8mm) fractured more easily than those with a thinner one( 1.3mm) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Fig of root M-d thin, concavitites. • Can show a cross section of tooth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • B) Preparation of coronal tissue www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Every effort should be made to save as much of the coronal tooth structure as possible, because this helps reduce stress concentrations at the gingival margin.1" www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • ?? • Stein RS et al (JPD 1002;68:428) in their study concluded that if greater than 2mm of coronal tooth structure remains the post design probably has a limited role in fracture resistance of restored tooth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Extending the preparation apically Creates a ferrule effect . Extension of axial wall of the crown apical to the missing tooth structure Provides a ferrule. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Purpose of ferrule ( JPD 1990)  improve the structural integrity of pulpless tooth by counteracting • 1. the functional lever forces • 2. the wedging effect of tapered dowels • 3. the lateral forces exerted during insertion of dowel • Thus prevents root fracture. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Extensively damaged teeth • Crown lengthening • Orthodontic extrusion www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • 2 Location where ferrule can be given • 1. Crown ferrule ferrule created by the overlying crown engaging the tooth structure www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • 2. core ferrule: ferrule is a part of cast metal core www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Sorensen et al (JPD 1990:63;529) and Tjan et al (JPD 1985;53:496) • Ferrule formed as a part of core are less effective than ferrule as a part of crown • Ferrule effect at both the levels did not increase fracture resistance as compared to ferrule only at crown level. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Ferrules that grasp larger amount of tooth structure are more effective than those that engage only a small amount of tooth structure. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Libman et al (IJP 1995;8:155) found that 0.5-1 mm crown ferrule are ineffective , whereas 1.52mm crown ferrule is effective. • Isidor et al (IJP 1999;12:78) increasing crown ferrule length  increases fracture resistance (1.25 & 1.55 mm) • Concluded  ferrule length was more important • Than post length in increasing tooth’s fracture resistance.( ideal 2mm???) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Sloping ferrule www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Sorensen at al ferrules are more effective when crown encompasses relatively parallel prepared tooth structure , than when it engages sloping tooth structure. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • RETENTION FORM www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • ANTERIOR TEETH • • • • • • Post retention is affected by the preparation geometry, post length, diameter, surface texture, and by the Luting agent www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • preparation geometry, • canals with circular cross section( Max CI)  prepare post space with parallel walls. • Tapered canals if parallel sided post given canal has to be considerably enlarged weakening of root. • Tepared post with restricted amount of taper( 6-8 degrees) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • FIG??? • Circular parallel posts are only effective in the most apical portion of the post space because majority of prepared post spaces demonstrate considerable flare in the occlusal half. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Post Length www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Standlee et al ( JPD 1978;39:401) Increase in dowel length  But relation is not linear www.indiandentalacademy.com Increased retention
    • Ideally post be as long as possible without jeopardizing the apical seal Or the strength or integrity Of remaining tooth structure. 5mm of GP be left in apical area www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • If post too long May damage apical seal Risk of perforation if apical third is curved or tapered www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • If post too short increased chances of root fracture (short post force applied near the incisal edge Of the crown will generate a greater couple increased possibility of root fracture Decreased retention www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Short root + tall clinical crown? Post short compromised mechanics Post long  compromised apical seal 3mm apical seal  acceptable www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Post diameter • Increase in post diameter to increase retention not recommended. weaken root. • Prognosis good when post diameter < 1/3 rd of cross sectional diameter of the root www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Post surface texture www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Serrated surface > Smooth surface www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Threaded dowel > Smooth dowel www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Luting agents www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Resin cements> GIC = zinc phosphate>poly carboxylate. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Choice of cement more important if post has poor fit in canal. • If rotation or post wobbles remake • Resin cements  if post is dislodged and has to be recemented. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Resin cements affected by eugenol containing RC sealers • Eugenol contains 2-methoxy- 4-allyphenol inhibits polymerization of composites. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Anthony H.L. Tjan et al (Q Int. 1992;23:839) • Did a study to evaluate the effect of eugenol- containing endodontic sealer on retention of prefabricated pots luted with adhesive composite resin cement. They concluded that: • Eugenol significantly reduced the retention of parapost dowels luted with panavia composite resin cement. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Irrigating the post space with alcohol or etching with phosphoric acid gel effectively restored the retention. • The use of alcohol (ehtyl alcohol/ethanol) as a canal irrigant or etching with 37% phosphoric acid gel was found to be effective in restoring the resistance to dislodgement of post. Irrigation with alcohol produced a more consistant and reliable result. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Posterior teeth • Long post with circular cross section  avoided curved, elliptical or ribbon shaped roots perforation. • . www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Chances of perforation on distal surface of mesial root And mesial surface of distal root www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Retention better by 2 or more relatively short posts in divergent canals • Select canals that are widest( palatal-max, distal-mandibular) for major post and then prepare short auxiliary post space in other canal with same path of withdrawl www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Resistance form www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Rotational resistance www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Circular post should not rotate during function. • Sufficient tooth structure present vertical coronal wall prevents rotation • Coronal dentine lost small groove anti rotational element www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Kurer et al (JPD 1977;38;515) • Gave a method to prevent rotation of threaded posts by placing rotation lock. • Sig: placement of post without cement possible facilitates removal of dowel in needed. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Stress distribution • Post and core improves resistance to laterally directed forces by distributing them over a large area. • Post design should distribute stresses as evenly as possible. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Increase in post length decrease stresses. • Parallel sided post more even stress distribution than tapered post (wedging effect). But Parallel sided post generate more stress at apex. • Threaded post high stress conc during insertion and loading. • High stress during insertion of smooth parallel sided posts as no place for escape for cement. • Cement layer more even stress distribution. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Basic components used in restoration of endodontically treated tooth www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Restorations for endodontically treated teeth are designed to : • Protect remaining tooth from fracturing • To replace missing tooth structure www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • The final restoration will include a combination of: • 1. Dowel, • 2. core • 3. coronal restoration www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Find a better pic • • • Core: replaces lost coronal; tooth structure and provides retention for crown Dowel: provides retention for core and must be designed to decrease the potential for root fracture from functional forces. Crown: restores the function and esthetics and protects the remaining root and coronal structure from fracture. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • The selection of individual components will depend on • whether the tooth is anterior or posterior • or whether significant coronal tooth structure is missing. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • DOWEL www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • dowel : a post, usually made of metal that is fitted into a prepared root canal of a natural tooth. When combined with an artificial crown or core, it provides retention and resistance for the .restoration (GPT-7) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • the dowel has both a retentive and protective function: • primarily to aid in the retention of the restoration and • to protect the tooth by dissipating or disbursing forces along the length of the root. • The dowel itself does not strengthen a tooth. infact the tooth is weakened if dentin is sacrificed to place a large diameter dowel. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • • • • • • • Ideal properties of the dowel. Maximum protection of the root Adequate retention within the root Maximum retention of the core and crown Pleasing esthetics, when indicated High radiographic visibility Retrievability Biocompatibility www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • CLASSIFICATION OF DOWELS www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • • • By Stephen Cohen Preformed dowels and custom cast dowels Metallic and non metallic dowels Rigid and flexible dowels Aesthetic and nonesthetic dowels www.indiandentalacademy.com

    • One piece dowel and core > www.indiandentalacademy.com Dowel with locking feature
    • Large dowel head > Smaller dowel head www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Dowel Composition and Dowel Retention www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Dowel retention is a clinical quality that is related to the underlying physical properties of the dowel material. The inherent strength of the dowel affects the dowel retention to the root and to the core. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Metal dowels are more fracture resistant  more retentive than carbon fiber dowel www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • ??? • Carbon fiber and glass fiberretained by dentine bonding agents better retention www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Core retention • The composition of the dowel also affects the ability to retain the core. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Integrated dowel and core systems in which both the dowel and the core are formed simultaneously from the same material eliminate the dowel and core interface. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Dowel cementation and dowel retention. • Retention for all types of dowels is affected by the cement selec­tion. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • zinc phosphate • retention  mechanical means. • no chemical bond to dowel or dentin • lack of chemical bond  advantageous www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Glass ionomer cements • bonds to dentin • but not to dowel www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Resin cements examples????? • bonds to dentin • and most dowel materials www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Standlee et al (JPD 1992:68;913) did a study on dowels retained by resin cements and concluded these dowels achieved very high retention. • Parallel dowels cemented with an adhesive cement are equal in retention to screw type dowels, without the inherent risk of screw threads in dentine. • This cement mediated maximum retention is not risk free, as 80% of the roots fractured when dowels were dislodged by force. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Cement manipulation procedures and ease of use  affect clinical retention of cements to the dowel. • Cement flow properties and consistency www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • strength and retention of resin cements also depends on complete set­ting. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Protective qualities of dowels • (resistance to root fracture ) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • The dowel must furnish maximum resistance to root fracture while providing reten­tion between the root and the core. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Dowel design and resistance to root fracture • Dowel shape and resistance to root fracture www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Parallel metal dowels distribute func­tional loads to the root more passively than tapered dowels. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Isidor et al (IJP 1992;5:257) • Martinez et al( JPD 1998;80;527) • tapered dowels (including the custom­cast dowel and core) that are closely adapted to the internal shape of the root canal are more likely to result in root fracture than are parallel­sided dowels. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Self threading dowels high rates of root fracture • Standlee et al (JPD 1992:68;913) • 40% of Self threading dowels failed by angular and vertical root fracture. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • ?? • About fiber dowels>>>>> less fracture of roos????????????? www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Dowel diameter and resistance to root fracture • • Sufficient to resist distortion and permanent bending under functional forces • Large risk of fracture • Composition plays a role parallel metal dowels narrower diameter than nonmetallic dowelspreserve tooth structure. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Dowel length’ and resistance to root fracture • Long enough to reduce conc. Of force in areas embedded in alveolar bone. • Isidor F et al (IJP 1999;12:78)  increasing dowel length from 5mm to 10 mm did not increased the fracture resistance in teeth protected by crowns designed with adequate ferrule. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Dowel composition and resistance to root fracture • Metal and zirconia dowels stiffer than dentinemore force conc. On root high chance of root fracture • Carbon fibre, glass fibre etcphysical properties resemble those of dentineless force conc on root (stress dissipated better) les chances of root fracture. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • ESTHETIC QUALITIES OF DOWEL • Metal and carbon fiber dowels non esthetic not to be used in esthetically critical areas . • Zirconia, fiberglas etc esthetic • Zirconia stiffer than dentine esthetic equivalent to preformed metal dowels.(fig??) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • ESTHETIC POST SYSTEMS www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Carbon fiber post (composipost(bisco)…), C­ post(bisco) fig • Introduced in 1990 by Duret . • First non metallic post • Consist of bundles of stretched carbon fibers embedded in an epoxy resin matrix and aligned along the long axis of post. • Unidirectional fibers, 8 microns in diameter • Carbon fiber by exerting uniform tension on the filaments impart high strength to the posts. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • • • Advantage: Clinical procedures are less time consuming The modulus of elasticity of the metal post is ten times greater than that of dentin. This incompatibility creates stress at the tooth cement post interface occasionally causing post separation and failure. Additionally the transmission of occlusal and lateral forces through the metallic core can focus stresses at specific areas of the most anatomy such as fulcrum resulting in fracture of remaining dentinal structure. The carbon fibers have modulus of elasticity very similar to dentin, this resemblance eliminates the stresses that are often formed at the interface of different material. Easy to remove for retreatment. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Disadvantage • Black colou­unesthetic • Radiolucency­very difficult to detect radiographically. • Undergo degradation on repeated mechanical loading and moisture contamination reduced modulus of elasticityrisk of debonding.. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Some studies?????? www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Ceramic posts • have excellent esthetics and biological properties • . Inherent weaknesses  low flexural strength and low tensile strength prone to fracture. • New ceramics like pressable ceramics, infiltrated ceramics,and zirconia can be used. • Zirconia posts high flexural strength and tensile strength. • Made from fined grained tetragonal Zirconium polycrystals (TZP). www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • • • Advantages Good esthetics Biocompatible Other esthetic post systems lack strength, Ceramic post are esthetic alternative to metal posts. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Disadvantages • High chances of root fracture • ? • Trade names • Cosmo post( Vivadent), Snow post (Danville?)?? • Biopost, TPZ post IPS Empress® Cosmo www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Glass fiber post • Unidirectional glass fibers embedded in a resin matrix www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Quartz fiber post(RTD post) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • • • Advantage: Modulus of elasticity close to dentine Esthetic Made of resinbond strength of resin cement enhanced. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Disadvantage: • Variable opacity • Undergo degradation on repeated mechanical loading and moisture contamination reduced modulus of elasticityrisk of debonding.. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Polyethylene woven fiber (Ribbond) • Suggested for use with composite to fabricate dowel and core. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Intraradicular Rehabilitation • Extensive decay or aggressive instrumentation of the canal makes the canal too wide for direct restoration. It is difficult to position the post in an ideal location for the subse­quent restoration www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • • • • • I. Luminex Light Transmitting System( Dentatus) The Light-Transmitting Technology for restoring Structurally Compromised Teeth Fragile, thin­walled teeth Extraction or cast post Now luminex system The clear light transmitting posts polymerize light­cured composites within the entire root canal. Luminex light transmitting post (LTP) allows the passage of light through its body but does not bond to the composite resin.. After curing, the LUMINEX post is removed, leaving a ready canal for a corresponding metal post. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • Lucent Anchor system (Dentatus) Fiber glass clear resin post • designed to refract and transmit natural tooth colors for esthetic post and core foundation. • A benefit of the translucent anchor is that it can be used with dual-cure resins and bonding techniques, which allow sufficient time for exact centering and seating of the anchor, as well as a complete fill of the composite inside the canal ( • radiolucent and is identified by surrounding resin cement. • • luted to the post space by dual cure resin. easy to remove for re­access to the canals. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • Twin Luscent Anchors(Dentatus) www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • Anchor Design Element Benefit Twin Luscent Anchor Narrow radial midsection Mechanica l resistance Provides double retention against accidental debonding of resins and other restorative materials Easy release Eliminates hydro­static of excess •Optimal choice for very pressure narrow and small canals, resin from 0.8 mm to 1.2mm Original Luscent Anchor •True taper Longitudinal www.indiandentalacademy.com vent-grove

    • • II. Para Post Fiber White Post : • The Para post fiber white post is a filled resin mono directional fiber matrix with a flexural modulus that very closely approximates that of the natural dentin. The color of the post is white translucent, designed to minimize shadowing under all ceramic restorations. The parallel sided posts intended for passive seating in the canal, and the antirotation I post head stabilizes the core materials. The Parapost fibre which is available in four diameters, color coded to match drills. The posts are readily removed should endodontic retreatment be necessary. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • III. FibreKor Post: • The FibreKor post uses glass fibers bundled in a resin matrix. The bundles are in turn impregnated with resin, cured and precision milled. The white color of the post blends in readily with dentin, eliminating the halo affect of metal or carbon fiber posts underneath all­ceramic restorations. The modulus of elasticity of the FibreKor post is closely matched to that of dentin, helping to distribute impact forces more uniformly along the prepared canal interface. The post is available in three diameters with size­matched drills. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • IV. Aesthetic-Plus Post: • The aesthetic­post system is actually a series of that can be used in a variety of situations. The traditional posts are two stage fiber posts, available in white or clear quartz fibers. There is also a tapered white fiber post. The posts have characteristics that are similar to their carbon fiber ancestors, including high flexural strength and a low modulus of elasticity. All the posts are retrievable if required for endodontic retreatment. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • D.T. LIGHT-POST (Bisco) • • • constructed from unidirectional, pre­tensed, quartz fibers bound in a resin matrix produces a post with flexural strength exceeding that of metal posts but with a modulus of elasticity very close to that of dentin. dissipates stress rather than transferring and concentrating stress in the residual root structures Because of its translucency, BISCO's D.T. Light­ Posts will transmit light and can be used with light­ cured or dual­cured cements and adhesives. • This post will intimately bond to the tooth structure and core build­up composite • This post is OPTICALLY TRANSLUCENT and RADIOPAQUE, at the same time. Each of the 3 sizes has an apical taper 0.02 (increase of diameter/millimeter), middle taper of 0.06, 0.08 and 0.10, and a parallel coronal section for maximum strength, surface area and core retention. • • • • • www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • ÆSTHETI-PLUSTM (2-Stage) Aesthetic Fiber Post System Bisco • These posts can be used with light­cured or dual­cured adhesives. www.indiandentalacademy.com
    • • • • • • • • • • ParaPost fiber white (coltene whaledent) Glass Fiber 42% White, translucent color minimizes the possibility of shadowing in anterior restorations. Metal­free for esthetics and for patients with metal allergies. Flexural modulus measures closer to dentin than other post materials. Filled resin/uni­directional fiber matrix strengthens the structure of the post without. compromising flexibility. Passive, parallel­sided design mirrors the qualities of metal ParaPostÆs. Anti­rotational post head for excellent adaptation of core material. Specially fabricated to bond with most resin cements and core materials. Readily removed if endodontic re­treatment becomes necessary. The posts are color coded for use with existing ParaPostÆ drills. www.indiandentalacademy.com

    • • In vitro comparison of the fracture resistance and failure mode of fiber, ceramic, and conventional post systems at various stages of restoration • J Prosthodont. 2001 Mar;10(1):26­36 • The fiber posts evaluated provided an advantage over a conventional post that showed a higher number of irretrievable post and unrestorable root fractures. At the stage of final restoration insertion, there was no difference in force to failure for all but the FibreKor material, which continued to be weaker than all other tested materials. The fiber posts were readily retrievable after failure, whereas the remaining post systems tested were nonretrievable. www.indiandentalacademy.com
