The effect of clinically relevant thermocycling on the flexural properties of endodontic post materials.

OBJECTIVES It is suggested that fibre-reinforced composite (FRC) posts have lower elastic moduli than metal posts and this will reduce the incidence of root fracture. However, the mechanical properties may be altered in the oral environment. The aims of this study were to determine the effect on the flexural properties of FRC and metal post materials… CONTINUE READING
