Root canal procedure is a difficult procedure in itself; but when canal is obstructed by a foreign body it becomes more taxing. This is more likely to occur in teeth with open pulp chambers. Fractured teeth or teeth with incomplete endodontic treatment in which canals are open for drainage and in the case of open carious lesion; foreign objects may become a potent source of pain and focus of infection. These objects can be retrieved with some ease if they are located within the pulp chamber, but once the object has been pushed apically retrieval may become more complicated. In the present cases, the foreign object was located within the root canal and retrieved successfully by simple nonsurgical techniques.
