My tooth fractured from installing the post on tooth #6. Is their any fault, or does it just happen? Should I get reimbursed for root canal,post,and crown?
Who's Fault for Tooth Fracture?

The question why did it need a post?? Many times when teeth are worked on multiple times they become brittle. It could also be that the structural integrity was compromised due to a large amount of dentistry on a single tooth. You have to realize that dentists are trying to save your teeth. I would say unfortunately sometimes this happens.
