Fiber Reinforced Composite Posts - A Review of Literature

Alexander Bonchev [4] | Elka Radeva [4] | Natalie Tsvetanova

Abstract: During the last years a significant progress in the development of bondable fiber reinforced composite (FRC) posts for reinforcing the endodontically treated teeth was observed. A lot of advantages such as high fatigue resistance, low elastic modulus, which is similar to that of dentine, excellent light conductivity etc. are attributed to the FRC posts. There are different types of FRC posts carbon fiber posts, prefabricated glass and quarz-fiber posts, individual glass fiber posts, polyethylene fiber posts, hollow posts. The surface treatment, adhesive systems and luting agents used for fiber post cementation were described in details.

Keywords: fiber reinforced composite post, hollow post, surface treatment, adhesion to dentin, luting agents
