Six years of in vitro : in vivo experience with Composipost

Some years ago, we created the following classifications for endodontic posts : first generation posts (self-threated posts, screw posts, serrated-carved posts); second generation posts (passive posts); third generation posts (nonmetallic passive posts). In this last group, we then placed carbon-fiber posts, which have a modulus of elasticity very similar to the modulus of elasticity of dentine and can realize a tooth-post-core monobloc instead of an assemblage of heterogeneous materials. This is quite a new philosophy in rebuilding endodontically treated teeth and is based on the use of integratable materials that homogeneously distribute masticatory loads and reduce stress.
