Double-Tapered Radiopaque Translucent Fiber Post System
The D.T. Light-Post Illusion X-RO* maintains all of the features and clinical history that the original D.T. LIGHT-POST® offers with the added benefit of greater radiopacity and the color-on-command technology. When the post is placed intra-orally, the intrinsic color of the post disappears allowing it to blend into the natural dentition. When retreatment or removal is ever required, the post will reappear on command by simply spraying cold water.
The D.T. Light-Post Illusion X-RO is available in 4 sizes, with each post being color-coded. The post colors match the drill markings, which helps the clinician distinguish one size from another, before and after placement.
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
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
Color-on-command technology simplifies the task of removing the post in the event retreatment is ever required
* D.T. LIGHT-POST/D.T. LIGHT-POST ILLUSION X-RO are developed by RTD.
