Aim: To review the literature pertaining to root canal management in different types of tooth abnormalities.
Methodology: An electronic search was conducted through databases PubMed and Google Scholar for different dental anomalies. Also, classical textbooks on dental anatomy, endodontics, and oral biology were searched. The search terms were: dental anomalies, root canal treatment in tooth anomaly, classification of tooth anomalies, gemination, fusion, dilacerations, and other different types of anomalies.
Results: Twenty-five studies related to root canal management in different types of tooth abnormalities have been included in this review. These studies used both periapical radiographs and cone-beam computed tomography for investigation and treatment, including a conservative approach, regenerative endodontics, root canal treatment, intentional replantation, and extraction. Most of the studies involved were case reports with follow-up periods ranging from 6 months to 18 years.
Conclusion: Comprehensive understanding of tooth anomalies and their clinical and radiographic appearance, correct diagnosis, case selection, and treatment planning are important factors in managing root canal treatment with tooth anomalies.
