Rights and Permissions

A precise knowledge of the root canal anatomy is the key to successful root canal therapy. Mandibular first molar usually has two roots (mesial and distal) and three to four root canals. In addition, any anatomic variations may occur in these teeth type. This clinical report describes two cases of root canal treatment of mandibular first molar with three root canals in mesial root (3–2) in one case and three root canals in distal root (2–3) of another one. The clinicians should be aware of the anatomical variations of different human dentition and must use all the available tools to detect and treat their clinical cases.
