The treatment of severely destroyed teeth involves quite often the placement of a fi berglass post into the root canal space as a means of retention for the fi nal restorative procedure. The bonding of fi berglass posts into the root canal is a very challenging task in which several factors may infl uence the fi nal outcome. This chapter summarizes (1) the several limiting factors that require the clinician's expertise to minimize bonding failures and (2) suggestions to overcome these limitations in a clinical setting.
