Objective: The purpose of this in vitro study was to investigate fracture resistance in teeth restored with cast post and cores with and without ferrule and using two different luting cements. Method and materials: Forty intact maxillary premolars were endodontically treated after their crowns were removed at 2.00 mm from the cementoenamel junction. Specimens were embedded in acrylic resin blocks in aluminum cylinders, 4.00 mm apical to the cementoenamel junction. Twenty specimens were ferruled, and half of the posts and cores were cemented with zinc-phosphate cement, while the other half was cemented with resin cement. The same procedures were followed for the nonferruled group. Loads were applied at an angle of 45 degrees and measured with a universal testing machine. ANOVA and Tukey test were used for statistical analyses; a significance level was established at 5%. Results: Ferruled specimens showed greater resistance than nonferruled ones, regardless of the cement used. There was no statistical difference between the group of specimens cemented with resin cement and without ferrule and the ferruled groups. The nonferruled group with zinc-phosphate cement showed the poorest results. Conclusion: A 2.00-mm cervical ferrule is important for fracture resistance of restored teeth, and resin cement has a better performance.

    The clinical success of fiber posts has been attributed to their lower elastic modulus. The tested hypothesis was that fiber posts could lead to lower risk of post debonding and lower risk of root fracture, despite an increase in root stresses. Stress analyses were carried out with a 3D finite...

    A 58-year-old patient presented with a dislodged crown and post and core on the maxillary right first premolar. After endodontic retreatment, two tapered glass-fiber posts were adhesively cemented. The core foundation was completed by retrofitting the existing crown with a self-curing composite...

    Restoration of endodontically treated teeth is a routine procedure in everyday clinical practice. Placement of posts and cores is often required for replacement of the missing coronal aspect of teeth. Use of traditional post-and-core systems (gold and titanium) in conjunction with all-ceramic...

    Background: Before obturation, various endodontic solutions are used as a final rinse. These solutions might affect the bond strength of Resilon-Epiphany system. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of NaOCl (5.25%), chlorhexidine CHX (2%), EDTA solution (17%), and BioPure MTAD on...

    The core finishing of cast posts-and-cores after luting is routine in dental practice. However, the effects of the vibrations produced by the rotary cutting instruments over the luting cements are not welldocumented. This study evaluated the influence of the time intervals that elapsed between...
