Fracture of an instrument during endodontic treatment is a common procedural error which often hinders the root canal procedure and affects the outcome .The separated instrument, particularly a broken file leads to metallic obstruction in the root canal and prevents thorough cleaning and shaping procedures. There are several methods and techniques available to retrieve the separated instruments from the root canal. This article describes the successful removal of a broken instrument from the root canal of a maxillary central incisor using H-files and K-files and continuous irrigation.
