Abstract


Fractured instrument in root canal therapy creates a major obstacle in completion of successful root canal therapy. It prevents thorough root canal cleaning and shaping apical to the level of separation and hinders the clinician from optimally preparing and obturating the entire root canal system. A number of different instrument removal devices have been reported but most are expensive and not easily available.

 

A case series is presented in which the fractured fragments are retrieved with the help of ultrasonic tips and headstroem files (braiding technique).
