Case Study
Overfilling of the root canal is one of the most common errors encountered In dental practice. A 40-year-old woman complained of paresthesia and swelling affecting the left side of the mandible. Panoramic radiographs revealed that the root canal was overfilled; endodontic restorative material extended as far as the mandibular angle. Several months after surgical removal of the tooth and excess filling material, the symptoms subsided. (Quintessence Int 2002;33:670-672)
