Abstract

Two hundred and forty root canals of extracted single‐rooted teeth were prepared to the same dimension, and Dentatus posts of equal size were cemented without screwing them into the dentine. Five cleansing solutions and two dentine adhesive systems were evaluated prior to post‐cementation using chemical‐cure composite resin.‘Pull‐out' tests were then conducted in order to evaluate the bond strength of these intra‐pulpal posts. The use of Conclude (composite luting cement) alone, with or without the cleansing solutions, resulted in significantly lower pull‐out forces. Scotchbond Dental Adhesive gave significantly better results, regardless of the cleansing solution used. Gluma Dentine Adhesive significantly increased the pullout forces only when used with its supplied cleanser or Tubulicid.
