Results: It was noted that the most common age group to undergo treatment for cast post and prefabricated fiber post were patients in the age group of 29-39 years (28.50%) the most prevalent gender to undergo this treatment was Male (56.64%), most prevalent post used in anterior region was prefabricated teeth (81.29%), most prevalent teeth to be treated was central incisor (50.52%).
