Dental Posts, Endodontic

Definition : Long, slender, dental devices, either custom-made or preformed, designed for insertion in the root canal (i.e., endodontic) to retain and strengthen restorative materials. These posts are typically solid, cylindrical, metal (e.g., stainless steel, titanium) pieces that are fixed, usually cemented, into a previously treated root canal; dedicated posts intended to support crown prostheses on top are also available. Smaller devices intended for insertion in the healthy dentine are called dental retention pins.
