Prefabricated Post System Can Be Customized

Richard Gawel


Filhol Dental’s FILPOST is one of the only prefabricated post systems that can be customized to suit restorations for root post and core build up, according to the company. FILPOST can be bent and shortened to suit canals without risk of fracture, enabling easy insertion of multiple posts into converging canals, Filhol says. Filpost also is engineered to be easier to place, even in difficult cases, in a faster, safer manner. It is more preserving of healthy tooth structure and stronger in use via its unique, passive interlocking system as well, Filhol says. 

FILPOST is 99.8% pure titanium, biocompatible, and compatible with all dental materials. No drilling is required during placement, preventing risk of perforation. Its anatomical shape minimizes dentin removal, the company says. Retention grooves along the post, working together with retention grooves formed within the canal surface by a special Universal Groover, create the unique, passive interlock strengthening retention.
