Crufty lentuloes very often surprise during removal procedures. This case is not an exclusion.

It took me two appointments to complete the task.
During the first one I was truing to “lift up” broken instrument using ultrasonic but failed due to lentulo’s separation. Had to dress Ca(OH)2 and go to time out.


Second visit consisted of drammatic events. I had removed lentulo (as I thought) and was pleased until…


Until I could not get my canal passed. So I took X-Ray and noticed one more separated part


O.K. It became more and more interesting. Finally I removed all parts and artifacts from canals (by ultrasonic) and finished case with composite build-up. Will crown it.
