Subject: [roots] 4 broken files retrieval case:)

An unusual broken files case for today

The referal started the treatment (no scope) initially there were 
2 broken files in mb canal, she ended with 4 and packed up for me:)

Unfortunately, although i bypassed the last one, couldn't retrieve 
it. (Boy i Wish Michael Arnold would be my neighbour - i'll make a 
great referal for him:) - Sergiu

Hi Sergiu.....what tech. do u adopt for retrieving instruments beyond the curvature ? What set of instruments ? - Sachin I am using k-files mounted in my scaler, and i precurve them:) - Sergiu Besides the diamond tips I am using a K10 by satelac but have been reluctant to prebend it ............. do u advise to go in for higher sizes like a K15 , K20/25 for better results - Sachin i am using k 20, k25, and i sharpen them at the tip with a diamond bur - Sergiu Pre Bending and sharpening.....I'll put this into use :-) - Sachin
