Description: Instrument separation is very frustrating. Instrument retrieval is even more frustrating and considered more challenging than any other procedure in endodontics because there was no predictable protocol for instrument retrieval. But the recent literature suggested that separated instruments that are visible under a dental operating microscope (DOM) can be predictably removed with ultrasonic tips alone using a single standardized retrieval protocol that minimizes potential variables. Visualization and accessibility to the separated instrument play a major role in successful instrument retrieval.

However, when it comes to the removal of non-visible separated instruments, an instrument retrieval procedure would be completely unpredictable from a lack of visualization. Hence, in the lecture how to manage non-visible separated instruments will be discussed and the best technique will be suggested to make it as predictable as possible to remove those beyond the curve under the DOM. In addition, the standard protocol in combination with CBCT for instrument retrieval will also be shown and discussed.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:         

  • • Make a predictable treatment plan for non-visible separated instruments
  • • Demonstrate minimally invasive and predictable way to prepare the canal for removal of non-visible separated instruments
  • • Perform the best technique to remove non-visible separated instruments
