RTD (Recherches Techniques Dentaires) is the world leader in fibre endodontic posts and fibre composite technology for dentistry. Established by a dentist, Dr Marc Reynaud, in 1968, We have grown in status, size and scope bringing many “firsts” to several areas of dentistry. Today, dentists place over 19,000 posts made by RTD every day.
All RTD fibre posts have an Elastic Modulus close to that of dentin (~18GPa), for a mechanically-harmonious “Monoblock” function that does not predispose to root fracture. They are biocompatible and cannot corrode or “show through” like most metal posts can. The posts are provided in hygienic “blister” packaging, and most versions are colour-coded to match the drills. RTD drills are machined to mirror the corresponding post dimensions exactly, but allowing a uniform 30 microns circumferentially, for a low cement thickness.
