The edelweiss POST & CORE system is a laser sintered monobloc designed to avoid the wedging effect. The posts have a conical shape for perfect post space adaptation. The translucency of the post allows uninterrupted light transmission for complete polymerization even at the most apical portion of the post.
The edelweiss POST is further enhanced by a core buildup into a single monobloc which is specifically designed to mimic the natural tooth form. The opaque core buildup in Vita Shade A1 is supplied in various anatomical forms based on the natural tooth form thus simplifying the preparation procedure. Any further preparation of this core buildup will then result in a core similar to that of the natural tooth structure. The edelweiss POST & CORE´s natural tooth design form enables for better retention of the final clinical crowns.
The adhesive bonding further contributes to avoiding the wedging effect by providing a single monobloc between the adhesive layer and the composite post. It is now possible to carry out the post & core placement together with the final restorative treatment in a single appointment, which is both time and cost effective for patient and dentist alike.
