Abstract

The effect of post design on the fracture resistance of endodontically treated premolars restored with cast crowns was examined in vitro. The experimental model used cast posts and cores to test the effect of post design in a post-core system with identical rigidity. Samples loaded on an Instron testing machine until failure revealed that post design did not influence the fracture resistance of endodontically treated premolars restored with complete cast crowns. There was also no statistically significant difference between restored teeth with or without cast posts and cores.
