Author(s): Monteiro Nikhil, Shetty Prashant, KV Kishan, Sampath Pavithra


One of the most frequent endodontic errors is the separation of an endodontic instrument while performing a root canal. For improved therapeutic results, reclaiming the instrument should be explored. A case study of the management of separated instruments is presented in this essay. The separated instrument was successfully extracted from the maxillary 2nd molar. The centre section of the maxillary 2nd molar tooth is where the instruments were separated in the canal. An ultrasonic device was used to remove the separated instrument after locating the level of separation and performing staging. After removing the separated instrument, the working length was obturated till the post-endodontic restoration was completed. The dentist can successfully retrieve separated instruments with the help of case analysis, a good arsenal, and experience. In every situation, caution must be exercised to prevent canal damage.
