Glass fiber reinforced composite post with a similar flexural modulus to dentin
The properties of the material in LuxaPost are also based on natural tooth structure and designed with a tapered form to conform easily to the post preparation.
LuxaPost‘s high flexural modulus, a measure of elasticity or harness, corresponds closely to that of natural dentin. This minimizes peak stresses in the post-cement-root system and lowers the risk of root fractures. The retention grooves improve mechanical retention rendering good stability.
The high degree of transparency prevents the post from shining through the tooth. It therefore delivers high esthetic restorations.
Pre-silanized and radiopaque
To meet the needs of dental practices, the new generation of LuxaPost is radiopaque and already pre-silanized. The LuxaPost uses a user-friendly color-coded system and only one drill per size which means no pre-shaping drilling necessary.
This simplifies the handling and reduces the treatment cost and additional silane is no longer needed.
