The likelihood of survival of a pulpless tooth is directly related to the quantity and quality of remaining dental. The potential increase in dental fracture after endodontic treatment is a major problem in restorative dental practice. Several questions are posed to the dentist when addressing the restoration of endodontically treated teeth: the effect of cusp or full coverage, need for endocrowns, onlays or inlays, some discussion about the necessity of post placement, efficiency and effectiveness of fiber post, effect of ferrule location on fracture resistance and failure pattern, etc. This session seeks to review the scientific evidence currently available regarding the various controversies existing in relation to the restoration of endodontically treated teeth.
