For many years, metal posts were used extensively for restoration of endodontically treated teeth. Their popularity is, however, declining now and there is a widespread interest in the use of non-metallic post material and techniques. Growing interest in esthetic dental restorations and adhesion dentistry has driven both manufacturers and dentists to create some innovative new post material like fiber reinforced composite and ceramics. This article provides a brief overview of recent advances in endodontic post material that have had a significant impact on the art and science of endodontic post placement.
