What should I do in case of a broken pin during root canal treatment?

During root canal treatment, if there is a broken pin, it is necessary to determine where it is broken.

If it is in the root canal opening or at the upper end of the root canal, the doctor can remove it with modern micro-endodontic techniques, using instruments designed to remove broken pins.

If it is more internal, then some dental endodontic surgery is required and it will be removed. If it is more difficult to remove, plasticizing treatment can be considered, so that the tip of the dental cement wrapped around the broken pin together with the root canal is retained in the root canal as root canal filling material, which needs to be observed regularly after the treatment.
