Commom questions
What is the difference between a carbon fiber pin and a fiberglass pin?

The carbon fiber pin is black in color and currently has the same mechanical strength as a glass fiber pin (1200 Mpa).

What drills should be used with Reforpost CARBON Fiber?

Post 1 – Largo drill number 3

Post 2 – Largo drill number 4

Post 3 – Largo drill number 5

What are the steps for the cementation of Reforpost CARBON Fiber?

Post preparation: clean with alcohol, apply silane (Silano – Angelus) for 1 minute, apply the adhesive.

Root canal: acid-etch (37% phosphoric acid for 30 seconds), wash with water, dry with absorbent paper points, apply the primer, apply the adhesive, place Reforpost with resin cement.

What is the advantage of a serrated post?

The undercuts increase the retention of the post with the cement.

Why does Reforpost 1 have a smooth middle part, without undercuts?

It’s thinner diameter and, consequently, less fiber, could render Reforpost 1 more fragile.  So its middle part is smooth, thicker and stronger.

What cement should be used with Reforpost?

For the cementation of CARBON fiber posts, self (chemically)-cured only resin cements are the best recommendation.

Reforpost Carbon Fiber

Retentive shape.

Description

Carbon fiber parallel intraradicular post with conical tip.

Recommendation

Support of restorations and prosthetic crowns.

Characteristics
  • High concentration of fibers
  • Metal filament
  • Modulus of elasticity similar to dentin´s
  • Conical tip
  • Parallel shape with grooves
  • Direct use (prefabricated)
  • Longitundinal fibers
Benefits
  • Great mechanical properties
  • Allows radiographic visualization
  • Lower risk of root fracture
  • Less tissue removal in apical third of root canal
  • Great retention
  • Saves clinical time and decreases lab costs
  • Easy removal
