The retention of Dentatus dowel posts in extracted teeth was examined for tensile strength. The Dentatus posts were cemented with "Conclude" luting cement alone or following two applications of Scotchbond Dental Adhesive. Dentatus dowel pins of different diameters were used although the canals were all prepared to the same diameter. The diameter of the dowel post has no significant influence on the retention. The application of Scotchbond to the walks of the root canal significantly increased retention of the posts.
