Abstract

Coronal fractures of the anterior teeth arising after endodontic treatment are sequelae of dental trauma. Endodontically treated teeth presents a higher risk of biomechanical failure than vital teeth. Posts are needed for restoring teeth with insufficient coronal tooth structure to retain a core for definitive restoration. Fiber posts are more easily and safely removed "by hollowing them out from the inside”. This present case report depicts a 23 year old male patient with fracture of tooth number 21 which had undergone an RCT 8-10 months ago and was restored using fiber post.
