The aim of this study was to analyze whether self-etch and self-adhesive systems are comparable to the total-etch system for fiber post cementation. This experimental laboratory study, which was approved by an ethics committee, was performed using 27 mandibular premolar teeth randomly divided into three groups. Fiber post cementation was done using three different adhesive systems. Specimens were prepared with a thickness of 5 mm, which was measured from the cervical to medial areas of the root, and stored for 24 h in saline solution at room temperature. A push-out test was performed using a universal testing machine (Shimidzu AG-5000E) with a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm/min. The results of one way ANOVA bivariate testing showed that the total-etch and self-etch systems have comparable adhesion capability (p<0.05) and that the self-adhesive system has the lowest adhesion capability (p>0.05). With easier application, the self-etch system has a comparable adhesion capability to the total-etch system.
