Clinical cases The purpose of this report is to present techniques and armamentarium for removing metal posts placed in the root canal in teeth with greatly destroyed clinical crowns and the need for endodontic retreatment. The treatment of three clinical cases (in the area of 25, 36 and 32 teeth) is presented in this report. Conclusions The removal of root canal posts provides access to the endodontic space for torough cleaning and disinfection.
