More information

The D.T. Light-Post, is an advanced fiber post that adapts to the contours of the prepared canal rather than forcing the dentist to adapt the canal to fit the post. Each post has two separate apical tapers, based on scientific, anatomical measurements, and a parallel coronal section.

In addition, the surface of the post is intentionally roughened to a highly micro-mechanical surface for excellent bonding and long-term.

Available in four color-coded sizes, the D. T. Light-Post is designed to fit virtually any clinical situation. The intrinsic post colors match the drill markings and help the clinicians distinguish one size from another. With this Illusion Technology, the color disappears within seconds at body temperature, but the color can be reconstituted, if necessary for re-treatment.

Testimonials

Christian Decloquement, Former Assistant of University of Paris VII, France

I have used RTD carbon fiber posts since 1988 with great time reliability, and have enjoyed the evolution of the posts in shapes and composition. The latest generation, DT Light-Post, is very convenient for the rotary endodontic technique and have a perfectly codified protocol placement, with the same mechanical properties (close to dentin) in order to protect these non vital teeth.

Simone Grandini, Chair of Clinical Endodontics, University of Siena, Italy

Fiber posts have changed the way of thinking of the reconstruction of the endodontically treated teeth. These so called low-modulus reconstructions respect (at the most) the residual tooth structure, and are reliable and with good mechanical properties. DT posts and APC represent the latest development in this field: they ensure a very good adaptation to the root canal walls, and can really be of great help for the clinician. Post cementation and core reconstruction can be obtained at the same time, limiting the amount of cement, of course saving time, and definitely with a high quality material.
