Aim: This literature review aimed to discuss the properties of post-removal kits and compare them with other systems used in removing inter radicular posts from root canals.
Methods: An electronic search of publications was made for the years 2000 to 2020. The databases included in the current study were PubMed, MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, Clinical Trial, and Saudi Digital Library.
Conclusion: The results suggested that the removal of fiber posts can be achieved in a shorter time and in a more conservative way by utilizing a post-removal kit as compared with an ultrasonic removal system. However, higher effectiveness and lower fracture resistance of the roots was achieved with ultrasonic vibration and diamonds than with post-removal kits. The number of microcracks after the post-removal and the amount of material on the walls of the root canal are not affected by the fiber post-removal method.
