Post & Core: An Essential And Time-Proven Procedure

What Is A Post And Core?

If a large enough portion of a tooth is missing, whether because of a cavity, the loss of a filling, or the access cavity from root canal work, a restorative dentist cannot simply place a crown on the tooth, because it won’t be strong or stable enough. This is where a core comes in, a core replaces the missing tooth structure and providing support for the new crown. In an endodontically treated tooth, sometimes, the core is enough, but if not, a post that extend into the root may be added to anchor the core to the root.
