Broken instruments can complicate disinfection and seem impossible to remove, causing stress for the clinicians involved. Although historic literature assumes that endodontic instruments cannot be retrieved and that extraction or apical surgery are indicated, Dr Yoshi Terauchi has researched, published and pioneered his own techniques for predictable, reliable and safe, steps to remove separated instruments.
