These are clinical cases submitted by dentists using Ribbond products in their practice. They may show steps and techniques that do not follow the Ribbond instructions for specific applications. They are not to be used in place of the instructions that are included with the Ribbond kit.
This case shows a post that adapts to the shape of the canals rather than machining the canals to fit the post. It also shows the Ribbond tags extending out of the canals. These tags decrease the effect of c-factor in the pulp chamber as they form the fiber composite core. Ribbond recommends using the Ribbond placement instrument for carrying the Ribbond into the canals.
This case involves a tooth in extreme labial version. To insure retention, the lingual splint was woven through the preps in the proximals and across the labial in a groove. The Ribbond “disappeared” under a thin covering of composite.
All of these three brothers were restored on the maxilla with bonding alone which was strengthened, in many locations, with Ribbond. The twins are 12 and their older brother is 22. To quote the dentist, Dr. Alfred Roseroot, "I must say the results were reportedly life-changing. This is a great example of why modern dentistry is such a gift to All parties!"
This case shows Ribbond being used to bridge cracks in the pulpal floor of a molar that had prior endodontic treatment. This is a good example of Ribbond being used in the construction of the “Biobase” for the onlay that will follow.
