In this case, a 28-year-old female patient took root canal therapy for repeated gingiva tumefaction and tooth stain in anterior teeth of left maxillary and giant foreign body at apex shown in X-ray photography. After removing the foreign body at apex by endodontic surgery, internal bleaching and resin repair were conducted. The therapy shows that the usage specification of hot gutta-percha should strictly follow the operational steps, while the necessity of X-ray photography after operation should be confirmed in clinical operation.
