Clinicians are frequently challenged by endodontically treated teeth that have obstructions, such as hard impenetrable pastes, separated instruments, silver points or posts in their root canals. Intracanal separation of endodontic instruments may hinder cleaning and shaping procedures within the root canal system, with a potential impact on the outcome of the treatment. This article presents an overview of the literature in relation to management of separated intracanal instruments and a case report of separated instrument retrieval.
