Filpin – Dentine Parapulpal Retention System

Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report - Filpin

read full report

FILPIN, highly rated by Clinicians Report, is to be considered whenever core build-up is used and less than one half of a coronal tooth structure remaining. Testing shows pins increase retention by 50% to 230% over use of bonding agent alone. Bonding alone is not sufficient in many situations were minimal tooth structure is present. Pins provide anti-rotational benefit when a single post is used. Pins are strongly recommended to supplement chemical bonding by adhesives.” Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report®.

FILPIN, designed engineered to make placement easier, faster, safer, stronger. The shaft is 99.8% pure titanium, biocompatible, compatible with all dental materials and will not corrode. The self-threading, self-aligning pin speeds and eases placement for self-shearing first time, every time once optimum depth is reached. After insertion FILPIN can be easily bent to suit the restoration without breaking it or the tooth. A unique thread design maximizes retention strength without causing internal stresses that may lead to cracking or crazing.

When to Use

  • To enhance retention to all types of dentine restorations by around 3 to 5 times. (Lo. C.S. et al., J Dent Res ‘94; 73:387).
  • To stabilise by cross-pinning MOD cavities.
  • To prevent rotation of restorations when a single post is used.

FILPIN is made by FILHOL DENTAL, a company specialising in the manufacture of high quality retention pins for 40 years. Millions of FILPIN Dentine Pins have been used worldwide.

Step 1

Latch the correct sized drill head (for your chosen size of FILPIN) onto a slow-spreed handpiece and make a pilot hole up to the drill’s self-limiting depth of 2mm. Repeat as necessary. NB: Ensure the pilot hole is drilled at a speed of 1500rpm or less. (click on the image for a larger view)

Step 2

Latch a FILPIN onto the handpiece and insert into the hole – hardly any pressure is needed to encourage the pin to insert. Once the correct depth of 2mm is reached, FILPIN will self-shear at exactly the right point. Repeat as necessary. NB: Ensure the pin is inserted at a speed of 1000rpm or less.

STEP 3

If required, bend the protruding pin/s to suit the restoration. Final build up of the restoration can now take place. (click on the image for a larger view)
