Instrument separation is a nightmare for dentists. It blocks the canal preventing further cleaning and shaping. This may lead to failure of root canal treatment. This case report presents successful management of instrument separation in mesiolingual canal of mandibular first molar. Retrieval of a instrument fractured below the curvature and extending periapically is a very difficult task. Ultrasonic technique along with dental operating microscope was used in this case.

Keywords: Ultrasonics, Dental operating microscope, Instrument separation.
