Adhesion to Root Dentin: A Challenging Task

  • Chapter
  • 1858 Accesses

Abstract

The treatment of severely destroyed teeth involves quite often the placement of a fiberglass post into the root canal space as a means of retention for the final restorative procedure. The bonding of fiberglass posts into the root canal is a very challenging task in which several factors may influence the final outcome. This chapter summarizes (1) the several limiting factors that require the clinician’s expertise to minimize bonding failures and (2) suggestions to overcome these limitations in a clinical setting.
