In this case series, no fracture or crack was observed in any of the teeth whose post was removed.
In addition, all teeth have the amount of tissue suitable for permanent restoration in a healthy way. The
correct selection of the cases and the experience of the clinician can be considered as the most important
criteria in terms of minimizing the complications to be encountered in the teeth to be removed and
resulting in the least tissue loss.
