TIP #73 – I Fractured a File – Now What? with Dr Mehdi Rahimi

Fractured instruments, perforations, hypochlorite accidents – you name it, it seems as though there are so many things that can ‘go wrong’ when we’re working on microscopic canals. It’s a daunting situation to be in, but it’s an inevitable part of practicing endodontics that happens to even the very best of dentists.

In this episode, Dr Mehdi Rahimi talks us through a mindset shift on how we should view these misadventures. In particular, we focus on fractured files and his top tips on the pre-emptive conversations we ought to have with patients, and how to go about managing them in case it does occur.
