What do you suggest if I have a tooth post in my mouth and since the MRI is magnetic i wasn't sure if that will effect it or not ?

In brief: No problem

One dental post shouldn't be a problem. Extensive dental hardware with a high content of metals, in some rare cases, can become a reason for a patient's rejection for an MRI test.
In any case you should mention the dental post on your intake form.
