Post & Core (Build Up)

Post Build-Up

A post & core build is generally performed on a tooth after a root canal and prior to placing a crown on the tooth. Although not all root canal treated teeth need post & cores, severely decayed or broken down teeth do. After placement of a post & core, it is recommended that a crown is placed on the tooth. Waiting too long for the crown may cause the tooth to break. The tooth could then be lost.

The first step in placing a post is performing root canal therapy on the tooth to remove the infection in the tooth. Once that is done, the largest and strongest of the tooth’s root is selected for insertion of the post. The canal is prepared in such a manner that the post will occupy 3/4th of its length and provide anchorage support to the final restoration. There are two types of posts that we place; a stainless steel post or fiber-resin post.

Core Build-Up

A tooth needing a root canal usually has a large filling or lots of decay and most of the original tooth is gone. During a root canal, a hole is drilled though the natural crown. The hole goes all the way through the center of the crown into the roots and the root canal is done through this hole. The drilled out area inside the tooth is called the core of the crown. All teeth need a dental crown after a root canal. For the crown to be successful, it must have a good foundation. The core build-up provides this support. It also replaces the original shape of the tooth so that it will be easier to design a crown.

After a root canal is done, all of the old filling and decay are removed. This leaves a shell of a tooth and a core build up replaces the missing tooth material. The remaining tooth is cleaned and special composite filling material or dental amalgam is placed into the core. The material replaces the entire missing tooth and strengthens what’s left to prevent breakage.
