Broken Instrument retrieval-Tips and tricks

OBJECTIVE : In Endodontics, retrieving broken instruments from root canals is a common challenge. When an instrument fractures, it can impede the treatment process and increase the risk of complications.

Firstly, utilizing magnification aids such as dental loupes or microscopes enhances visibility and precision during the retrieval process. Additionally, specialized instruments like ultrasonic tips and micro-instruments are valuable for accessing and dislodging fragments from intricate canal systems.


  1. Identifying broken instruments in root canals.
  2. Techniques for safe removal.
  3. Minimizing damage to surrounding tooth structure.
  4. Using specialized tools for retrieval.
