Abstract

An in-depth knowledge of the root canal anatomy is important for any successful root canal treatment; however, complexities exist within the root canal morphology. The maxillary first molar has variations in its root morphology and canal configurations. In literature, this variation is only observed in an estimated 1.12%-1.17%. One such case is described in this case report which provides the endodontic management of a left maxillary first molar with two palatal canals using loupes magnification.

KEYWORDS:
