Objective: This study presented a case of internal root resorption in a tooth with pulp necrosis that was submitted to endodontic treatment. In this treatment, an additional irrigation technique with a XP-Endo Finisher instrument was used during the chemical-mechanical preparation. Methods: After radiographic diagnostics and semi-technique tests, instrumentation was performed with Protaper universal system, activation of irrigation solutions, 2% chlorhexidine digluconate with the XP-Endo Finisher file, removal of the smear layer with EDTA 17% activated with the same system, intracanal medication Calen with paramonochlorophenol, temporary sealing of the tooth crown with Coltosol. In the second session, an obturation procedure was performed using the Schilder technique associated with the Tagger hybrid technique. Conclusions: The XP-Endo Finisher system was effective as supplementary irrigation technique and it facilitated the cleaning of the root canal system.
