The roots and canals of maxillary second premolar have several typical anatomical features, as well as a great number of anomalies. The awareness toward atypical anatomy can be a critical factor in determining the success of endodontic therapy. This case report of 32-year-old healthy female patient describes the successful endodontic therapy of a left maxillary second premolar with Type VI configuration according to Vertucci's classification. The pulp of the tooth was previously initiated with asymptomatic apical periodontitis. An operating dental microscope was used to locate the orifices of the canals. Recall radiograph shows reduction in the size of the apical radiolucency.
