For direct restorations with glass-fiber post
Dentoclic glass-fiber posts are made of 80% unidirectionnal parallel oriented glass fibers embedded in 20% of epoxy-resin. This type of post enables minimally invasive direct restorations.
Excellent mechanical properties for a reduced risk of fracture
- Homogeneous distribution of the mechanical constraints
- Excellent resistance to flexion (836Mpa) thanks to its many longitudinal glass-fibers
- Elastic behavior similar to dentin
Highly translucent posts
- Excellent distribution of the light in the whole material
- Allows polymerization of the core build-up material on all of the post surface
- Mechanical and chemical retention thanks to the bond between the core build-up composite material and the glass fiber post
- High radiopacity (232% Al)
- No risk of corrosion or coloration
- Compatible with Dentoclic drills

A constraint /deformation report in favor of the tooth “In fact teeth restored using glass-fiber posts result in only a small number of failures, which are often repairable. In contrast, teeth restored using metal posts commonly present with more significant fractures, often resulting in the loss of the tooth.“ (Standlee, 1988; Freeman, 1998)
- Flexural strength: 857 MPa
- Radiopacity: 232%Al
How to remove a glass-fiber post ?
- Remove the composite in order to gain access to the relevant post.
- Make an initial hole at the location of the insert without water to it.
- Use either a diamond-tipped, sonic or ultra-sonic insert without water, or a suitable drill, to delaminate the fiber and reveal the canal under the restoration.
In comparison to other systems such as inlay-core, the clinical value of this type of restoration lies within the ease of such removal procedures.
