Posts Fill Void in Root Canal, Improve Strength of Unit

Dentistry Today


Ultradent Products introduces Unicore Accessory Posts, part of the Unicore Post and Drill System. Designed for the general dentist and endodontist, Unicore Accessory Posts work to fill voids in the root canal, improving the overall strength of the post and core unit. The posts were created to be placed in the root canal alongside a master post, such as the Unicore Post. Adding accessory posts allows for much better adaptation in the case of flared and oval canals, according to the company, eliminating the need for an additional drilling procedure.

Unicore Accessory Posts feature a tapered shaft for dentin conservation and enhanced adaptation in flared canals. This minimizes gap formation as well as polymerization shrinkage. The posts are stronger than composite resins, Ultradent reports, providing reinforcement of the restoration inside and outside. They feature high translucency for optimal aesthetics and light conductivity. They also are radiopaque, making them easy to see in radiographs.
