Abstract

The most predictable factor in endodontic treatment which results in a predictable outcome is if a clinician has any knowledge about the hidden internal anatomy of the root canal systems. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) can act as the “third eye” for clinicians if they suspect any variability in canal configuration. This case report stresses the importance of such a preoperative CBCT evaluation, failure to do so results in a failed root canal treatment. The Palato - mesiobuccal canal of maxillary molars has been rightfully named so due to its close relationship to the palatal canal and can easily be mistaken for an additional palatal canal clinically. This case reports the rare occurrence of a combination of a C-shaped configuration in a Palato-MesioBuccal canal with a fluting of the root in a maxillary molar.
