When to Use
- To provide retention of restorations by single or multiple root posts.
How to Use
Remove adequate gutta percha from root canal and then use a Gates Glidden drill or equivalent to create a post space to the required depth and shape.
To create retention grooves on the inner surface of the canal, attach the FILPOST Universal Groover onto a slow-speed handpiece, insert into the canal up to the desired depth and rotate once or twice using a slow circular motion.
Select the correct sized FILPOST and carefully place into the root canal. Bend and shorten the post as required to suit the shape and length of the canal and the proposed core build-up.
After confirming correct adjustment, clean the canal space and cement FILPOST into the root canal using any type of luting cement.
Final build up of the core and restoration can now take place.
