"Broken File At Apex"

   (1 review)

Case of the Day
I had a patient to come in today who had a dentist try a root canal on an "easy tooth". In the middle of the procedure, he noted a file broke off and the patient was in discomfort. He sent the patient to me. I was able to remove the file even at the apex (tip of the root) complete his root canal and save his tooth! That's what we do as Endodontist - Save Teeth Painlessly! Ask your dentist about an Endodontist before your root canal procedure.
I have an article on Endodontic Retreatment in Dentistry Today and Inside Dentistry if you would like to know more about my technique.

Nice job retrieving file. Looked like a straight forward bicuspid.
