ABSTRACT

Knowledge of anatomic variations is essential for endodontic success, which is related to a thorough debridement of the root canal system. About 2% of mandibular canines presented with one root and two canals, and of that, 1% had two roots and two canals. This case report presents a rare case of a mandibular canine with two roots and its endodontic management. The missed second root of mandibular canine was identified by cone beam computed tomography and was subjected to sound endodontic therapy and restored to proper function and esthetics.

Keywords: Canine morphology, Cone beam computed tomography, Mandibular canine with two roots, Post and core.
