Background: When restoring teeth, the post and core method is often employed. Unfortunately, several reports of endodontically treated teeth failing after placement of this material exist. Objective: The purpose of this research is to determine whether or not dentists have a thorough understanding of the causes of post and core failure. The goal is to evaluate patient outcomes following post coronal restoration procedures, such as post space preparation, post placement, and post final coronal restoration. Methodology: The quantitative methodology has informed a cross-sectional study design. One hundred dentists were chosen at random to fill out the questionnaire, which was then examined statistically. Results: Sodium hypochlorite irrigation, rubber dams, mineral trioxide aggregate management, and follow-up were all mentioned in the findings. Further, it was demonstrated that factors such as tooth size, tooth type, repair time, and repair material all play a role in whether or not a restorative tooth fails. Conclusion: According to the results, the study population had varying degrees of understanding of the post- and core-restorative system. Guidelines should be established to improve restorative practices and expand understanding. Likewise, this aids in avoiding any accidents that could arise as a result of the same causes.
