OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between physicochemical interactions of resin luting cements with dentine and retention of fibre posts in root canals.

METHODS: Retention of fibre posts (RelyX Fiber Post) was assessed by the pull-out method. The diffusion zone of the cements and their chemical interaction with dentine were estimated by micro-Raman spectroscopy. Resin luting cements employing etch-and-rinse (Rely X Ultimate and Variolink II), self-etch (Rely X Ultimate and Panavia F2.0), or self-adhesive (RelyX Unicem 2) modes were investigated. Data were analyzed by analysis of variance followed by Tukey HSD tests.

RESULTS: The retention of the fibre posts decreased in the following order: RelyX Ultimate, etch-and-rinse mode>RelyX Unicem 2≥RelyX Ultimate, self-etch mode≥Panavia F2.0≥Variolink II (p<0.05). One of the etch-and-rinse mode cements presented the deepest diffusion zone, while the other, along with the self-adhesive cement, produced the shallowest zone. Cements used in the self-etch mode showed intermediary diffusion into dentine (p<0.05). All resin luting cements showed some degree of chemical interaction with dentine, the highest recorded for RelyX Ultimate used in the etch-and-rinse mode and the lowest for Panavia F2.0 (p<0.05). The retention of fibre posts in the root canal could be attributed neither to the mode of interaction of the luting cements with dentine nor to their ability to diffuse into dentine.

SIGNIFICANCE: Chemical interaction between the resin luting cement and the dentine paired with adequate post pretreatment contribute positively to the retention of fibre posts.
