Fractured teeth have always presented a challenge to the dentists. The predictability of root canal therapy, as it is today, can retain almost indefinitely, even very badly broken teeth. One of the widely accepted techniques involving restoration of extensively carious or badly fractured teeth is the fabrication of a post and core, utilizing the root canal space for anchorage. Thus far, the only materials that have been available to the dentists for this procedure have been a variety of metallic alloys. Hard and unyielding, these metals have to be cast in the precise shape of the prepared canals and cemented into place. Today, materials are available, which eliminate all the intermediate steps, and control is rendered in the hands of the dentists, to fabricate on the chair, a resilient, esthetic and bonded post and core. One such material is discussed here in pediatric permanent anterior tooth.
