The restoration of endodontically treated teeth
The restoration of endodontically treated teeth is an area of much controversy and divergence of opinions. Is the pulpless tooth more susceptible to fracture than a tooth with pulp? Does every en dodontically treated tooth require a post and core? Does a dowel and core protect the tooth from frac ture? Is a cast post superior to a prefabricated post in protecting the tooth against fracture potentials?
In answering these questions, the dentist often depends on his own clinical experience and past training.
