Abstract

A case of fractured roots on the mandibular left first and second premolars is presented. The fractures may have been due to the use of excessive pressure during placement of endodontic posts in the pulp canals of the two premolars.These findings were accompanied by radiographic radiolucencies, which were the first indication that a pathologic condition existed. The fractures and the resultant bone resorption required extraction of the both the first and second premolars.
