Clinicians are regularly confronted with different choices after failure of root canal treatment. As patients increasingly express a preference for retaining their natural dentition and further endodontic treatment is feasible Non-surgical Retreatment should be the treatment option considered. systematic search was conducted in the Pubmed, Medline, and Indmed Databases with appropriate key words related to Non-Surgical Retreatment. A hand search of Journals and textbooks and manufacturers of instruments were contacted. The new generation of Endodontic instruments, magnification, materials, technology with the basic principles of endodontic retreatment have helped in retention of the patients natural tooth structure to form and function decreasing the need for extensively expensive prosthetic replacement in the area of Implant dentistry. A willingness and open-mindedness to hybridize various techniques may result in a more effective endodontic outcome. Surgical approach can be adopted in obstructed, calcified or non-negotiable canals.
