Removal of the different materials from the root canal in a failed endodontic treatment is a prime requisite for endodontic retreatment. Complete removal of the materials such as gutta percha, broken instruments, or post is of particular importance for accessing endodontic space, cleaning, shaping, and disinfection of the root canal. Intraradicular post removal poses a challenge to the clinician with associated risks. This case report focuses on removal of the metal post and endodontic retreatment of the maxillary canine with minimum armamentarium to enhance the longevity of the tooth.
