ABSTRACT:Background: The development of immature teeth can be arrested because of various harmful stimuli such as trauma, caries, and anatomic variations such as dens evaginatus. The present study was conducted to compare fracture the resistance of simulated human immature teeth treated with anatomic post and MTA as apical barrier.
Materials & Methods: 32 permanent mandibular incisors were randomly divided into two groups of 16 each. Group I—apical barrier using Biodentine and Group II—apical barrier using MTA (MTA Plus). Fracture resistance was compared.
Results: Fracture resistance of control was 640.4 and in group II was 613.5. Everstick showed value of 1476.3 MPa in group I and 1290.5 MPa in group II. Inter- group comparison was significant (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Authors found that everstick post is a viable option for reinforcement of teeth with immature root apex.
