Abstract

The results indicated that (1) increased tapering of tooth preparations resulted in loss of retention and this variable was statistically significant for both cements used when convergence angles exceeded 10 degrees and (2) sandblasted nickel-chromium retainers, combined with adhesive resins, should provide sufficient retention for posterior resin-bonded fixed partial dentures.
