Abstract

Statement of problem. Debonding is a common cause of failure encountered with fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) posts, and usually occurs along the post space-dentin adhesive interface. Surface conditioning of posts is expected to increase the chemical and mechanical bond between the luting composite resin and the post, but the best method has not been definitively determined.
