Filpin (continued)

When to Use

  • To enhance the retention of all types of restorations to dentine.
    Compared to using resin bonded amalgam only, FILPIN
    can increase the retention of restorations to dentine 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.

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)
