Hi,

Could you please review the attached photos and x-ray taken before treatment, post root canal and post temporary filing. Please let me know whether a post is required. Or is core filling with crown sufficient?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • By looking at your pictures (attachment removed to protect patient identity), it seems that there is an adequate original tooth structure for placement of crown without a post.
  • I would say it is up to you to decide, as the tooth in the current condition has enough strength to place a crown without post if the tooth preparation (cutting the tooth from all sides to place a crown) is done properly and minimally.
