Post & Core

Post-and-Core

Post & Core is used, when a natural tooth (often a molar tooth) has a large decayed area. The remaining tooth is not enough to support a crown. An alternative to this restoration is an implant system, but it is fairly expensive and time-consuming. In this case, an easier way is to build a post & core as a prepared tooth. So the tooth can have enough area to support a crown or a bridge. Here are the good reasons for post & core:

1. Cost-effective  2. Good retention  3. Less time-consuming
