Endo Questions for the RWE Faculty:: dentin mud

I created dentin mud while working on #29. I tried all the techniques but didn't work and I ended 2 mm short. The file was like hitting a rock. The x ray didn't show any curvature though.What should I do. Thanks

In reply to nagam Khudir The main reason for that is debris mismanagement. It’s important to not do too many strokes at once that creates large amounts of debris, remove the file from the canal and wipe it frequently to clean the chip space, and irrigate frequently. The combination of these three things helps reduce loose debris generation that helps reduce dentinal mud impaction. 
Good luck! :)
