Kiss your fear of broken endodontic instruments goodbye! Instrument breakage is a possible complication of mechanical preparation and widening of complex root canal systems. The more difficult the endodontic treatment, the greater the risk of instrument fracture. Recent studies show that more than 90% of all broken endodontic instruments can be successfully removed without surgical intervention. However, before undertaking your first removal attempt, you must learn how to determine the answers to some important questions:

1. When should a broken instrument be removed and when should it be left in place?
2. What are the appropriate methods for broken instrument removal?
3. Which instruments should be used for which level of difficulty?

Besides having a good knowledge of the anatomy and morphology of the tooth, you must have training in removal methods if you are to succeed at removal of broken instruments. On this DVD, I propose a simple, step-by-step strategy illustrated by numerous images and clinical case demonstrations. This systematic approach can help you significantly improve your odds of successfully removing broken endodontic instruments from the root canal.
