Case Study
Anomalies are commonly occurring phenomenon. For successful completion of the non-surgical root canal treatment, a thorough knowledge of root canal anatomy and its variations is necessary. Normal root and root canal anatomy of mand. 2nd pre-molar is well documented in various text books but there is a great deal of variation in the reporting of the incidence of anomaly. Incidence of two separate roots in this tooth is rare. This paper attempts at explaining the successful management of rare case of mand 2nd pre-molar with three root canals with an overview of type and number of common anatomic forms.
