PURPOSE Fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) posts have gained much interest recently and understanding of their viscoelastic properties is important as they can be used in stress-bearing posterior restorations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the creep behavior and the viscoelastic properties of four commercial FRC posts under different temperatures and different storage conditions. METHODS The FRC posts tested were Glassix, C-Post, Carbonite and Snowlight. For the creep measurements a… CONTINUE READING
