Post System Offers Great Start-To-Finish Solution

Considering that placing posts and cores is not an everyday procedure for most of us, it’s surprising how many emails I get from dentists asking which system I like.

Considering that placing posts and cores is not an everyday procedure for most of us, it’s surprising how many emails I get from dentists asking which system I like. As a result, I try systems on an ongoing basis. But I’ve found that for the most part it’s a niche filled with “me too” products.

I ordered the Rebilda Post System from VOCO and was pleasantly surprised from the moment I opened the box and read the directions in the lid. The rest of the industry could learn a thing or two from VOCO about directions. Beyond that, the fiber post is essentially translucent while being more radiopaque than the post I used previously. The drill sizes are matched well to the post sizes, and the inclusion of VOCO’s bonding agent and dual-cure buildup material ensure the chemistry will work to provide maximum retention. The following photos show its use in a clinical case.
