Insights into a comparison of three different cements on the push-out bond strength of a glass-fibre post

One of the main causes of failure of fibre posts is debonding of the post in the prepared post space. The adhesive properties of total etch adhesive cements were assessed by comparing the performance of cements using self-etching adhesive resins, to verify which system provided the best retentive capabilities with a double tapered post system. Extracted maxillary central incisors were endodontically treated and randomly divided into three groups: the Calibra (Dentsply), RelyX Ultimate (3M ESPE) and Panavia F2.0 (Kuraray) groups. RelyX Ultimate produced significantly the highest de-bond stress values (p<0.05) in the overall performance, as well as in the coronal, middle and apical sections of the tooth. Thus RelyX Ultimate with self-etching adhesive reliably can be used for post cementation with a double tapered post system in endodontically treated anterior teeth.
