Authors: Abdul Mujeeb, Samir Mansuri and Mothanna Al-Rahabi
Abstract: Root canal anatomy is highly complex and unpredictable. An awareness and understanding of presence of additional root and unusual root canal morphology is essential as it determines the successful outcome of endodontic treatment. In spite of all procedural protocol if clinician misses an additional root or canals it could pose great challenge to the clinician and thus can lead to failure of endodontic treatment.
Mandibular molars can have an additional root located lingually (the radix entomolaris) or buccally (the radix paramolaris). If present, an awareness and understanding of this unusual root and its root canal morphology can contribute to the successful outcome of root canal treatment. This case report discusses the prevalence, the external morphological variations and internal anatomy and endodontic treatment of Three Rooted Mandibular Molar (Radix Entomolaris) which is a rare macrostructure.
