Castellucci A, Gambarini G. Obturation of iatrogenically damaged root canals with injectable thermoplasticized gutta-percha: a case report. Int Endod J. 1995;28(2):108-10.
A case is reported where the high flow characteristics of thermoplasticized gutta-percha provided an efficient seal even without adequate shaping of an iatrogenically damaged root canal system. Persistent periradicular irritation was reduced significantly, or isolated within the root canal space, thus allowing periapical repair.
