The restoration of endodontically treated teeth with post and core is a challenge. Success will depend on proper diagnosis, selection of teeth to be restored, the type of post and the knowledge and skill of the dentist. Adequate retention of the post is a pre requisite for the clinical success of the post retained crown. The retention of post depends on the length, diameter, design adaptation, method of cementation, lubrication of canal, post material, and position in the arch. While considering any post, the dentist must weigh retention against stress distribution, so as to attain optimum balance between retention and resistance to root fracture.
