Fiber Post Treatment
What is Fiber Post Treatment?
Fiber post treatment is a method applied in cases where the loss occurring on any tooth is too high. It is usually applied in cases where all parts of the tooth are destroyed and only a tiny part remains. The remaining part is so small that it is not possible to fill the remaining part. In cases where all parts of the tooth are fell off, it is sufficient to carry out possible treatment with a solid root.
What are the Advantages of Fiber Post Treatment?
- Increases the resistance of the tooth: Fiber post treatment increases the resistance to fractures by supporting the crown and the root part of the tooth.
- Prevents tooth loss.
- Reduces implant requirements: In cases where the root is intact, it prevents the need for an implant because treatment is provided without tooth extraction.
- Gives the tooth a solid texture: It ensures the treatment of tissue losses in the teeth and the regain of solid tissue.
In which cases fiber-post treatment is required?
Fiber post treatment is not always a necessary treatment. A dental post is generally considered just an helper in helping attach a tooth core to a tooth.
If there is still enough natural tooth structure, no post is required. As a general rule, if more than half of the original crown part of a tooth has been lost, a pole is required to help attach the core to the tooth. If more than half is present, a core alone will probably be enough for the tooth.

How is Fiber Post Treatment Applied?
- Before the fiber post application is started, the damaged tooth is first treated with root canal treatment.
- If there is no loss of substances in the tooth after canal treatment, the process is terminated by filling and the tooth is saved.
- If too much substance is lost after root canal treatment, fractures occur in the tooth. In order to prevent the tooth from breaking, the onlay process can be used.
- If the walls belonging to the tooth are completely lost as a result of root canal treatment, support is obtained from the root of the tooth after the procedure.
- A bunch is placed on the supported part of the tooth.
- Dental filling is applied on this bunch.
- After filling, a corroded form is brought to the tooth.
In which cases can fiber post treatment not be applied?
- It cannot be applied to teeth that are not suitable for root canal treatment.
- If the tooth root is deformed, it cannot be applied.
- It cannot be applied if the tooth root is rotten.
- If the tooth root is under the palate, it cannot be applied.
- If the tooth bone is not strong enough, it cannot be applied.
What is fiber post structure like?
The fiber post structure consists of two parts called post and core.
What is Post?
It is a small stick placed within the tooth and the root area that overflows out at a distance of a few millimeters. This stick is usually metal. The post is then used to keep the core or fill in place. Since the post is placed in the root canal during application, it can only be applied to a tooth that has undergone root treatment.
What is Core?
The structure called Core is the core as it is called. The core replaces the missing tooth structure when preparing to make a new dental crown. Normally, a tooth core can be created directly from composite materials.
However, a tooth stick can be used to help attach the core to the tooth. In this case, the core is usually made of metal alloys, and the device is called direct and hub. The core is then used to keep a tooth crown in place. The crown can be a single-unit crown or a holder crown for a dental bridge.
Points to Pay Attention in Oral Care to Avoid Needing Treatment
It is a very important factor to carry out oral care correctly and regularly so as not to need fiber post therapy or any similar treatment. You can also have healthier and non-therapeutic teeth by applying the following substances.

- Visit your dentist at least once a year, even if you don’t have natural teeth or prosthetics.
