Abstract

Criteria have been presented for the evaluation of and treatment planning for endodontically treated teeth for final restoration. The dentist must consider the advantages and disadvantages of saving teeth according to their eventual role in restoring occlusal function, arch integrity, and esthetics. The prognosis is dependent on successful endodontic therapy, the presence of sound periodontal support, and an acceptable restorative effort. Currently accepted post and core systems and materials have been reviewed.
