  Dens invaginatus is a developmental dental anomaly that results in an enamel-lined cavity in-folding into the crown or root. It happens before the mineralization phase. It is usually found in permanent maxillary lateral incisors, central incisors, and premolars. This paper describes the root canal treatment of Oehlers’ type II Dens invaginatus with evaginatus in maxillary left lateral incisors. A 16-year-old boy presented to the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Government Dental College, Jaipur with chief complaint of pain and pus discharge in upper left anterior region. During examination, an intraoral sinus with relation to upper left lateral incisor was found. On electric pulp testing upper left lateral incisor gave negative response. Radiographic along with clinical examination confirmed the diagnosis of chronic periapical abscess and Oehler’s type II Dens Invaginatus and evaginatus with relation to upper left lateral incisor. Non-surgical treatment was planned for the same and executed. We decided not to remove the dens from the main canal and to treat the dens tract with the main canal. Non-surgical root canal treatment of the invaginated canal along with the pulp canal proved successful in promoting the healing of an associated peri-radicular lesion.
