Filpost – Endodontic Root Canal Post

The FILPOST Endodontic Root Canal Post  is the only prefabricated  post retention system that can be customised to suit the restoration for root post and core build up. FILPOST can be bent and shortened to suit the canal without risk of fracture, enabling easy insertion of multiple posts into converging canals.

Step 1

Remove adequate gutta percha from root canal and then use a Gates Glidden drill or equivalent to create a post space to the required depth and shape. (click on the image for a larger view)

Step 2

To create retention grooves on the inner surface of the canal, attach the FILPOST Universal Groover onto a slow-speed handpiece, insert into the canal up to the desired depth and rotate once or twice using a slow circular motion. (click on the image for a larger view)

STEP 3

Select the correct sized FILPOST and carefully place into the root canal. Bend and shorten the post as required to suit the shape and length of the canal and the proposed core build-up. (click on the image for a larger view)
