The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the microhardness of packable composite compacted with hand or ultrasonic pluggers in post spaces. A total of 168 extracted human anterior teeth were prepared with Gates Glidden and ParaPost drills after obturation. A primer and a dentin-bonding agent were applied to the etched surface. Half of the specimens were compacted with an ultrasonic tip and the other half with a mechanical hand compactor and all specimens were polymerized for each… CONTINUE READING
