Evaluating the Number of Walls Present and its Significance on the Teeth Restored with Metal Post in Mandibular Molars
The control of the process–structure–property relationship of a material plays an important role in the design of biomedical metal devices featuring desired properties. In the field of endodontics, several post-core systems have been considered, which include a wide range of industrially developed posts. Endodontists generally use posts characterized by different materials, sizes, and shapes. The prognosis of endodontically treated teeth depends not only on the treatment itself, but also on sealing the canal and minimizing the leakage of oral fluids and bacteria into periradicular areas by prompt placement of coronal restorations.This treatment includes the decision of whether or not posts. should be used. After many years of scientific work involving post material, post geometry, post length, core material, and other considerations, the indication for posts is reemerging as a topic of discussion. Aim of this study is to find out the significance of the number of walls present in mandibular molars that are indicated for prefabricated metal post and core treatment. The study was a retrospective analysis done in a university set up. Data of patients who underwent post and core treatment were collected by evaluating the patient records and tabulated. Data was imported to IBM SPSS version 20 software and statistical analysis was done. From the study it was observed that most commonly post and core treated teeth was mandibular 1st molar . It was also found that there is significant correlation found between teeth undergoing metal post and core treatment and number of walls remaining.
