The adhesion between fiber posts and root canal walls: comparison between microtensile and push-out bond strength measurements.
Aim of the study was to compare the trimming and non-trimming variants of the microtensile technique with the 'micro' push-out test in the ability to measure accurately the bond strength of fiberExpand
