ABSTRACT:Purpose: The aim of the study is to evaluate the fracture resistance of an endodontically treated teeth restored with custom made and everstick post and core systems. Methods: Twenty extracted premolar teeth with similar size were chosen and randomly divided into 2 groups. After cutting the crowns and endodontic therapy, the teeth were restored with custom made post (group 1), and everstick post (group 2). Fiber posts were cemented with dual cured resin cement and cast posts were luted using luting glass inomer cement. Samples were embedded in the acrylic resin blocks. And a compressive load was applied to the tooth at a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min and fracture loads were recorded. The results then analysed by one way ANOVA F test and POST HOC TURKEY test. Results On comparing the mean values and standard deviation observed, it was observed that Everstick posts showed mean fracture resistance of 332 N and Custom cast showed mean fracture resistance of 160.4 N. Conclusion It can be concluded that, among the two posts system, used in the present study. The Everstick posts showed the maximum fracture resistance as compared to the custom made post. However, long term clinical studies are required to determine the success rate of the Everstick posts.
