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

Interfacial strength of Resilon and gutta-percha to intraradicular dentin.
Strengthening of Resilon-filled roots via an adhesive interface should be reflected by improvement in the interfacial strength and dislocation resistance between the root fillings and intraradicularExpand

The contribution of friction to the dislocation resistance of bonded fiber posts.
This study tested the null hypothesis that the use of dentin adhesives produces no improvement on the fixation of fiber posts with resin cements in endodontically treated teeth. Post spaces wereExpand
