Reconstruction of the crowns of non-vital teeth with posts can be a very useful technique. However, there are many cases where the length of the posts are insufficient, resulting in a poor fit and dead space at the apex of the post. The purpose of this study was to compare the post length to the depth of the post preparation using parallel X-ray films of 31 teeth (incisors, canines and premolars) and to locate the dead space at the apex of the post. In addition, stress analysis of the post… CONTINUE READING
