Table 6 Mean retention forces (Mean) and standard deviations (SD) for the different material groups (DECBL = Denzir sandblasted; DECUNBL= un-sandblasted; PROCERA) and storage groups (AS = artificial saliva; Water) expressed in Newtons. The results are based on pooling the values for the two storage times.
