Broken H-file removal (by Ilya Mer)

I was asked to make an attempt of non surgical re-Tx of lateral man incisor

Two broken fragments are seen in the apical third, root canal is over-enlarged probabaly because of previous attempts to remove the fragments.

  1. Nice!!! How did you do it?
    This week I’ve removed an instrument that I broke previously in a very sclerosed canal in the mid third. Instrument is out but there is so much dentine removed!
