Vijay Reddy Venumuddala, M Sridhar, M Rajasekaran, Saravanan Poorni, Gnanaprakasam Senthilkumaran

Overview

The knowledge of variations in root canal morphology is critical for successful root treatment. This article presents the root canal treatment of a unique case of mandibular first molar with three distal canals which is quite uncommon.

Summary

Consistently high levels of success in root canal therapy require an understanding of the root canal anatomy and morphology and that the entire root canal system must be debrided, disinfected, and filled. Thus, it is necessary for the clinician to have knowledge of not only the normal anatomy but also its variations

Endodontic success in teeth with the number of canals above that normally found requires a correct diagnosis and careful inspection.??Morphological variations in pulpal anatomy must always be considered before beginning treatment. The case presented shows that a middle distal canal in mandibular molars is one such variations. Although the frequency is rare, each case should be evaluated carefully both clinically and radiographically.Dr Vijay Reddy Venumuddala, MDS
