VOCO’s Rebilda Post GT is a bundled, glass fiber-reinforced resin post—a first of its kind, VOCO reports—comprising multiple diametrically smaller posts (0.3 mm). According to the company, these bundles of finer posts, varying in number dependent on required post size, offer enhanced physical properties and capabilities that enable their use when situations arise that limit the possibilities for using conventional root posts, such as atypical root anatomies (eg overly curved root canals or pronounced conicity, among other situations). Additionally, the posts eliminate the need to mechanically prepare the root, preserving healthy tooth structure while minimizing trauma to the tooth.
High radiopacity, high flexural strength, high fracture resistance, and elasticity similar to dentin allow Rebilda Post GT to be the solution, whether it is for routine, everyday post-and-core procedures or the more difficult, yet commonplace atypical root canal anatomies, VOCO says. After Rebilda Post GT is seated within the root canal, the bundled posts are intentionally spread out to increase the surface area they can offer to the core build-up restoration for greater adhesion and retention values to the build-up restoration.
