MacroLockXRO post features Macro Lock

  • Macro-serrations and anti-rotation features interlock with the cement and core material to increase retention.
  • Flexural strength of at least 1800 MPa makes it the strongest fiber post on the market.
  • Intrinsic color-coding disappears when seated, re-appears on demand, if removal ever becomes necessary.
  • Tapered shape enhances adaptation to the root anatomy and conserves dentin.
  • Incorporates color-coding for easy identification before or after placement – posts match the drills.
  • Atraumatically removable in minutes.
  • Translucency provides esthetics and expedites the dual-cure cementation procedure.
  • Corrosion-free and biocompatible.

"I have placed over 500 Macro-Lock posts without a single failure. The tapered shape facilitates minimal removal of tooth structure and ensures a minimal amount cement, which minimizes polymerization shrinkage and micro-leakage. Superior physical properties, along with macro and micro-retention, and anti-rotational features make this my post of choice for extensively broken-down teeth."

Dr. Manfred Friedman

"I have used RTD fiber posts since 1997 and do not have cases of breaking or failure in my treatments."
