Management of failing endodontic treatment may present significant challenges. The following case report describes the use of a contemporary endodontic material--Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA). Successful resolution of endodontic disease was accomplished through a combined orthograde and retrograde approach. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Contemporary endodontic techniques can provide good success rates in challenging cases. In particular, the material MTA now has a proven track record of performance and reliability in clinical research, and should gain widespread acceptance in general dental practice.
