The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of different restoration techniques on the fracture strength of roots with flared canals. The crowns of 50 extracted single-rooted human teeth were removed and the canals were flared. Five groups were created (n=10): Group 1: ReforPost (Angelus) was luted using Clearfil SA Cement (Kuraray); Group 2: ReforPost and two accessory posts (Reforpin, Angelus) were luted with Clearfil SA Cement; Group 3: Restored with i-TFC post-core system (Sun Medical); Group 4: The thickness of the root-dentine was increased using composite resin (Clearfil AP-X, Kuraray) and cured with the help of Luminex. ReforPost was then luted; Group 5: Anatomic posts were created by relining ReforPost with Clearfil AP-X and then luted using Clearfil SA Cement. The cores were created with composite resin in all the samples. The crowns of sound teeth were prepared similar to a core (control, n=10). The specimens were vertically loaded (1mm/min), the force that was required to fracture each sample was recorded (N) and analyzed (One Way Anova, Tukey tests). No significant difference was found among the groups (p>0.05). The roots restored by using accessory post and i-TFC post-core (Groups 2 and 3) indicated a 100% favorable fracture pattern. Ten percent of the root fractures were observed in other groups. All techniques saved the root structure and showed 80-100% favorable failure pattern. The use of i-TFC system in flared roots could be an alternative to anatomic, accessory, and prefabricated fiber posts.
