Abstract

Procedural accidents during endodontic treatment often complicate the overall treatment plan of the patient. One of the most frequently encountered procedural accidents is fracture of endodontic instrument. Removal of fractured instrument from root canal is often a difficult procedure especially, when the fractured instrument extends beyond apex. This case report presents the management of a case involving the surgical removal of a broken endodontic file from the periapical region of the mesiobuccal root of a maxillary second molar.
