Description:
In the practice of endodontics, clinicians may encounter a variety of unwanted procedural accidents and obstacles to normally routine therapy, at almost any stage of treatment. One of these procedural problems is intracanal instrument fracture. Fractured root canal instruments may include endodontic files (Figure 1) and Gates Glidden burs. Instruments are made from nickel titanium (NiTi), stainless steel or carbon steel. Fracture often results from incorrect use or overuse of an endodontic instrument, and seems to occur most commonly in the apical third of a root canal. This demonstrates the importance of correct training in the use of rotary NiTi files
