Background and Aims: Loss of retention is one of the main reasons of failure in teeth restored with post and core. Several factors, including the type of cement can influence the retention of the posts. As zinc phosphate cement is considered as the standard for comparison this study performed to review articles evaluating the retention of cast posts cemented with zinc phosphate.
Materials and Methods: This systematic review was performed based on the PRISMA (Transparent Reporting of Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses) guide. The question of this study was that how much is the amount of retention of cast posts cemented with zinc phosphate. Hence, a literature search was done in PubMed and Medline databases as well as Google scholar search engine using relevant keywords until 2016 limited to the English language. Articles were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria, and were evaluated qualitatively.
Resultes: Internet search resulted in 1141 articles. Following the application of inclusion and exclusion criteria, 6 studies were included in this systematic review. The most common post material was nickel-chromium alloy. Retention of casting posts cemented by zinc phosphate was from 8.76 to 34.2 Kg and from 91 to 192.2 N.
Conclusion: Our review showed that the retention of cast posts cemented with zinc phosphate in controlled condition is moderate and factors including post material and length could influence the retention of the post.
