Mean load (SD) to failure of the group using "conventional" grooves extending in dentin from the gingival floor occlusally to near the occlusal DEJ was 196N (46N). For long grooves extending from the gingival floor to the occlusal surface, the mean failure load was 169N (58N). Slot restorations with short resistance/retention grooves or points (0.5-1.0 mm) just gingival to the occlusal DEJ had a mean failure load of 132N (44N).
