Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate retention & fracture resistance of different fibre posts. Methodology: 90 extracted human permanent maxillary central incisors were used in this study. For retention evaluation, after obturation, post space preparation was done in all root canals and posts were cemented under three groups. Later, the posts were grasped & pulled out from the roots with the help of a three-jaw chuck at a cross-head speed of 5mm/min. Force required to dislodge each post was recorded in Newtons. To evaluate the fracture behavior of posts, artificial root canals were drilled into aluminium blocks and posts were cemented. Load required to fracture each post was recorded in Newtons. Results: The results of the present study show the mean retention values for Fibrekleer Parallel post were significantly greater than those for Synca Double tapered post & Bioloren Tapered post. The mean retention values of the Double tapered post & the tapered post were not statistically different. The Synca Double tapered post had the highest mean load to fracture, and this value was significantly higher than those of FibreKleer Parallel & Bioloren Tapered post. The mean fracture resistance values of Parallel & tapered post were not statistically different Conclusions: This study showed parallel posts to have better retention than tapered and double tapered posts. Regarding the fracture resistance, double tapered posts were found to be better than parallel and tapered posts.
