MONA IONAS, ALEXANDRU PAUN, MARCU FRATILA INFLUENCE OF THE FIBER POST MATERIAL ON THE RECONSTRUCTED TOOTH CROWN BENDING RESISTANCE Post and core build-ups provide resilience and retention for future tooth restorations. In this study we intend to assess the resistance to fracture of two types of aesthetic post, using a testing machine after the application of a paraxial force. The results show that no specific material from the ones used shows a better behavior. Fiber quartz posts AAA Fiber Post had the highest resistance and the fiberglass posts Matrix Plus 2 were rated with the lowest values. Further laboratory and clinical studies are necessary to the in which one type of post material is favorable for a specific type case.
