Ingestion of the endodontic instrument during root canal treatment is an undesirable yet not uncommon mishap in the practice of endodontics. Such incidents are on a rise owing to the increase in number of endodontic cases being performed by the endodontists and the dental practitioners in the modern times. Serious complications may be encountered if such endodontic mishaps are not handled timely and efficiently. The present case report discusses the management of a typical case of ingestion of an endodontic file which was successfully retrieved by an endoscopy procedure.
