Title: Three-dimensional endodontic guide for adhesive fiber post removal: A dental technique


The use of endodontic microscopy is important for adhesive fiber post removal, but this procedure remains risky due to the difficulty in post removal by trimming or ultra-sound insertion without affecting the root structure integrity. Also, the techniques available for fiber post removal require significant operator skill to avoid possible deleterious consequences as these techniques are very precise.    This dental technique describes a solution developed from the experience obtained attempting to gain access to calcified conduits using prototyped guides that facilitate localization and direct adhesive post removal through the root canal system. The removal of an adhesive fiber post is an important step for endodontic retreatment and resolution of prosthetic problems. This protocol is performed with a prototyped endodontic guide. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD - CAM) technology is used to generate guides with prototyping and is a useful tool for fiber post removal. The combination of intra-oral scanning associated with prototyped endodontic guide is a promising option that is easy to execute and offers a less stressful solution regarding the possibilities of deleterious consequences of the procedure, such as radicular structure reduction, crack propagation, root axis deviation and perforation. This approach is considered important for difficult cases, in which the ordinary known procedures for post removal are not suitable.


Débora Drummond Hauss Monteiro graduated in dentistry in 2009 by Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil, post graduated in restorative dentistry (2012) and obtained her MSc degree also from UFMG (2015). She has experience in microbiology research, tooth bleaching and salivary flow, and has presented several scientific studies in Brazil , USA and Singapore conferences. In 2013 her teaching experience began as a volunteer professor in Dentistry Faculty of UFMG. She had developed learning handout for study and practice guide for Laboratory Practice on Metallic Restorations of UFMG (2013). She has published scientific articles on international and national journals. Débora believes combining clinical practice and teaching with the research is the true path for the development of knowledge and nowadays she keeps working in her dental office while works as a dentistry teacher on the Faculty of Administrative Studies (FEAD) and as a researcher on the PhD course that she does in UFMG to seek the answers for the questions that rise in clinical practice. She is a member of International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and Brazilian Society of Dental Research (SBPqO), and has presented several works in their meetings.
