STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The increase in wall thickness of weakened roots using composite resins may increase the root resistance to fracture. However, little is known about the recently developed methods for intraradicular reinforcement of weakened roots. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the fracture resistance of experimentally weakened roots reinforced with composite resins, compared with conventional systems that use cast and prefabricated posts.
