Non-surgical Removal of Overextended Gutta-Percha in Endodontic Retreatment Cases.

Shilpi Gupta, Meenu Dhiman, Moksha Mehta.

Overextended gutta percha could cause an inflammatory reaction in periapical tissue. Though the root canal filling materials are well tolerated by periapical tissue but a high failure rate is associated with the overfilled toot. CASE1 a new, unused and autoclaved H-file was used to remove the overextended gutta percha fragment. The file was carefully inserted into the canal to engage the broken gutta percha point coronally. CASE2 A similar approach was followed using an H-file to retrieved the broken gutta percha point from periapical area.

Key words: Gutta-percha, periapical, inflammation, retreatment.
