Does crown for root canal #2 tooth always need a post? Dr said had good remaining tooth structure/bone and could go w/out post.

root canal #2 tooth got crown and no post and am wondering if this makes tooth vulnerable but dentist said should be ok due to tooth structure/bone.

Hi, the necessity for a post comes when remaining tooth structure wont be able to hold restorative material, but if the remaining structure is good enough the post is not really necessary. hope this helps, good luck

Post needed on crown

pending tooth structure remaining not all root canal teeth need post. if your doctor this you need a post buildup, he may think the remaining tooth is not strong enough to hold the build up material.
