3M Oral Care Releases RelyX™ Fiber Post 3D Glass Fiber Post

In Search of Simplified Post and Core Solutions, 

New fiber post is centerpiece of efficient 3M post and core solution

ST. PAUL, Minn. – (Jan. 20, 2016) – Often teeth that have undergone endodontic therapy are rendered compromised with regard to structural integrity and esthetics. To combat this common issue, dentists understand the importance of using an endodontic fiber post to recreate an abutment and preserve tooth strength. But placing a fiber post can often be time-consuming and inefficient, adding multiple steps to an already complicated endodontic procedure. With the new RelyX™ Fiber Post 3D, 3M introduces an integral component of 3M’s new streamlined post and core solution.

The new RelyX Fiber Post 3D builds on 8 years of clinical success of the original RelyX Fiber Post. Its updated design offers higher mechanical retention to the core build-up material thanks to coronal 3D macro retentions, and maintains a strong bond in the root canal due to its microporous surface. Post position control within the canal is greatly improved as a result of RelyX Fiber Post 3D’s enhanced radiopacity. And, in combination with not more than three other easy-to use 3M products, the entire post and core build-up procedure can be significantly simplified and requires just four simple steps:
  1. Dentists begin by applying the ready-mixed RelyX™ Unicem 2 Automix Self-Adhesive Universal Resin Cement directly into the root canal from bottom to top using an endo tip for a virtually void-free mix.
  2. Following cement application, RelyX Fiber Post 3D is placed in the canal without pretreatment such as etching or silanization.
  3. Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive is then applied to the post and surrounding tooth structure providing a reliable bond to the core build-up material.
  4. After adhesive application, Filtek™ Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative enables a fast, easy and void-free core build-up around the post.
“Performing endodontic restorative procedures can be complicated and often come with a lot of variables that a dentist can’t control,” said James Braun, DDS, MS, of Saginaw, Mich. “With the 3M post and core solution, I can feel confident that I receive a robust and reliable outcome from a simple procedure.”
