In the early times when only metal posts were available, studies proved that parallel metal prefabricated posts and screw type metal posts offer superior retention than tapered metal posts, in vitro. However, the use of parallel posts require removal of more dentin to fit into place.
At present, dental fiberglass posts are among the most popularly used dental posts, which are available in both shapes parallel as well as tapered. The tapered designs are beneficial since they offer benefits of conserving the dentin and reduce the stress without compromising the strength.
Furthermore, most dental equipment used to access the root are tapered in shape. For instance, endo files, reamers, gutta-percha, and paper points are all tapered in design. As a result, it would seem reasonable that tapered dental fiberglass posts are preferred over other types. Another most common issue of the parallel post is lack of venting.
Parallel posts are made to maintain proximity to sidewalls, from the time of penetration to the complete seating thereby functioning a piston like function. Thus, without a vent for the cement or air at the end of the inserted post, the post floats back when pressure is released. Unlike the parallel posts, tapered posts have the ability to self-vent due to its design. Such benefits increase the traction of tapered dental fiberglass posts for various endodontic procedures.

Increasing Dental Tourism and Import-export Activities for Dental Materials and Consumables
One of the most important and rapidly expanding medical tourism segment is that of dental tourism. Rise in in-bound dental tourism of a country can have a significantly positive impact on the dental fiberglass posts market in the region. For instance, in Western Europe, Hungary is becoming a capital for dental tourism. This is primarily due to the substantially low cost of dental care services in this country.
The cost of dental care in Hungary is about 40-75% less when compared to the U.S. and other developed countries. Rise in import of dental supplies and consumables in Poland and Russia will boost the growth of the dental fiberglass posts market in Eastern Europe and other similar nations. Such evolution in trade practices are expected to significantly push the growth of the dental fiberglass posts market.
