The aim of the presentation is demonstrate to those wishing to advance their dental skills and treatment options that procedures don’t always go to plan as in the textbooks. Endodontic therapy covers the discipline dealing with diseases that affect the tooth pulp tissue. The two most frequent procedures performed in endodontics are vital pulpotomy followed by pulp capping and pulpectomy or root canal therapy. The common problems encountered when performing endodontic therapies include variable anatomy, periapical abscessation, presence of pulp stones, obliterated canals, inadequate equipment for the species, instrument failure and breakage, tooth fracture, tooth loss and haemorrhage. We will present cases involving the complications and attempt to describe methods to overcome these issues
