MANDIBULAR CANINES WITH TWO ROOTS AND TWO ROOT CANALS: CASE REPORT
European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2022, Volume 9, Issue 8, Pages 2143-2146
AbstractUsually, the mandibular canine only has one root and one root canal. There has been a noticeable increment in evidence showing variations in its morphology, such as the presence of two roots and two root canals. The aim of this article was to present a case of a mandibular canine with two roots and two root canals. Root canal treatment of tooth #33 with such morphology was performed in a 47-year-old man. Although mandibular canines with two roots and two root canals are not common, clinicians should always anticipate the presence of possible variations. Therefore, timely diagnosis and meticulous exploration of such mandibular canines allow for planning of an individualized treatment protocol, tailored to their peculiar morphology, focused on avoiding excessive weakening or even perforation of the roots.
