Search result: Two systematic reviews and two additional trial reports that were not covered by the systematic reviews were found.

Clinical outcomes: The older systematic review (2005) included only one relevant trial not included in the other more recent systematic review (2014) and stated higher failure risk for metal-posts. However, the more recent systematic review included 14 trials and found no significant differences. In addition, one trial indicated higher fracture risk and lower retention for fibre-posts after 12-months but another trial found no differences between the two after 18-months. Based on these results it may be concluded that both types of posts have sufficiently similar clinical efficacy.

[‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases searched, as well as the assessment of precision and internal validity of results and thus do not replace the need for a full systematic review report to the topic]
