Permanent Maxillary Molar with Two Palatal Roots: Two Case Reports

Reetu Shrestha


The success of endodontic therapy depends on three dimensional cleaning, shaping and obturation of the entire root canal system. But this is often challenged by variation in internal anatomy of teeth. One of the rare variations is the presence of two palatal roots of maxillary molars. The following case report describes the management of maxillary first and second molar with two separate palatal roots. Although rare, anatomical aberration can occur in every tooth so awareness of their presence would help in successful endodontic therapy.
