Biomechanical Principles of Root Canal-Treated-Teeth Restored with Fiber-Reinforced Resin Posts

  • Chapter

Abstract

Adding a post affects the biomechanical response of root canal-treated teeth. This chapter discusses the biomechanical performance of anterior and posterior root canal-treated teeth restored with fiber-reinforced resin posts and the effects of post systems, post lengths, luting procedures, ferrule design, and coronal restorations. The chapter includes discussion of anatomic glass fiber posts for severely weakened endodontically treated teeth and adhesive endocrown restorations.
