Rights and Permissions

Root canal treatment is often required when primary endodontic treatment has failed. In order to remove the root canal filling material, chemical solvents are used to solubilize the gutta-percha. Despite many advantages, these solvents can lead to mishaps when not used cautiously. The purpose of this article is to present a case report of angioedema caused due to periapical seepage of orange oil and also highlighting the preventive measures and management of such accidents in dental office.
