3yr recall of a cracked #36

push2

3yr recall of a cracked #36 with fracture extending into the ML root. When the peri-apex looks clean i sometimes don’t hesitate considering an endo. Of course with an informed consent about the doubtful prognosis. A post was cemented in the involved root for some added re-enforcement.

“A post was cemented in the involved root for some added re-enforcement.”

Great case, what do you mean by this statement? In residency I was always taught that posts don’t reinforce roots and in fact that posts were contraindicated in canals with cracks. Thanks!
