The failure of endodontically treated teeth is usually not a consequence of endodontic treatment, but inadequate restorative therapy or periodontal reasons. Prior to the initiation of endodontic treatment the restorability, occlusal function, periodontal health, biologic width, and crown-to-root ratio need to be assessed. If acceptable, the appropriate technique, material, and type of restoration to restore function need to be considered. Posts are used to provide retention for the core material and to replace missing tooth structure. The residual amount of tooth structure will determine its stability for restoration. The creation of adequate ferrule (approaching 2 mm circumferentially is ideal) minimizes the damaging effects of lateral and rotational forces on the restoration and post. Keywords: core, endodontically treated tooth, post
