Double-Tapered Radiopaque Translucent Fiber Post System
BISCO’s patented* D.T. Light-Posts are constructed from unidirectional, pretensed, quartz fibers bound in a resin matrix. This design produces a post with flexural strength exceeding that of metal posts but with a low modulus of elasticity similar to dentin, allowing it to absorb functional stress and prevent root fractures. Compared to competitive posts, BISCO fiber posts have a long clinical track record of success. The D.T. Light-Post is available in 4 sizes, each with two tapers to mimic the natural shape of the canal and to conserve tooth structure. The D.T. Light-Post is packaged with color-coded rings to simplify identification and placement.

Unique Benefits

  • Translucency enhances esthetics and light transmission
  • Radiopacity allows for visibility on radiographs
  • Double-tapered design closely conforms to the shape of the prepared canal to minimize dentin removal and cement layer
  • Unidirectional, pretensed, quartz fibers bound in a resin matrix gives it a greater flexural strength than metal posts
  • Maximum strength – no notches or serrations to compromise strength
  • Fiber optic design allows light to traverse through the post so it can be cemented with light activated materials

Clinical Significance

  • BISCO’s fiber posts have been placed in over 3,400 cases as part of a decade long multi-center clinical trial. Three (3) post fractures and zero (0) root fractures have been documented**
  • Retreatment is quick with the D.T. Light-Post Removal Kit and a low-speed handpiece
