As a dentist, your patients rely on you to improve the form and function of their dentition and relieve them from pain. When teeth require root canal therapy, the endodontic restorative process can be complex. The more variables involved in the process, the more opportunities for error.

Dental professionals rely on technologies and products that can help them execute post and core procedures more efficiently, while also delivering higher quality outcomes for their patients. When thinking about recommended procedures, they look for processes that are not only efficient, but simplified and backed with technologies that support longevity – you want your work to last.

Here’s a recommended procedure.

A simplified endodontic procedure

3M has developed an efficient 4-step post and core dental procedure that is not only simpler, but also faster and more reliable than many endodontic restorative processes.

The basic procedure is as follows:

  1. Fill the root canal in just one step with RelyX™ Unicem 2 Automix Self-Adhesive Resin Cement.
  2. Insert the RelyX™ Fiber Post 3D Glass Fiber Post.
  3. Apply one coat of 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive.
  4. Complete core build-up with Filtek™ One Bulk Fill Restorative.
