STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Unresolved controversy exists concerning the best technique for restoring endodontically treated teeth. Prefabricated posts have been recommended with some debate as a method of restoring pulpless teeth before placement of the final restoration. PURPOSE The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effect on the strain, fracture resistance, and fracture mode of endodontically treated human incisors of 4 types of restorations with or without glass fiber posts… CONTINUE READING
