Influence of different posts’s composition and shape on bond strength to radicular dentin
Aim The goal of this in vitro study was to evaluate the bond strength to radicular dentin of a new post in combination with two different luting resin materials and comparing it with a well known translucent post available on the market.
Materials and methods A pilot study was conducted on 30 single-rooted extracted teeth, in order to study the link between the dentine-cement interface on the one hand and the post-cement interface on the other hand. Push out bond strength test was perfomed on two types of cement: Kuraray Panavia (Japan) and Gradia Core (GC Tokyo Japan) in combination with two types of fiber posts: Edelweiss post (Edelweiss Dentistry Products GmbH, Wolfurt, Austria) and GC Fiber Post (GC Gradia Core Tokyo Japan).
Results According to the results of this study, the GC Post / Gradia Core group recorded push-out forces significantly higher than those of the groups in which the new post was used (p <0.05).
Conclusion Within the limits of this in vitro study, it can be concluded that the highest values of adhesive strength in the push-out test were achieved by GC post/Gradia Core GC. Regarding the area of root that can produce the best push out bond strength, it clearly resulted that the coronal third of the root was the best substrate to lute posts.
