Abstract

The simplest teeth to treat with a root canal are those with a single root. The literature has reports of single rooted tooth with multiple canal instances. The main reason why endodontic therapy doesn’t go well is because the presence of a second canal is not detected. The secret to an effective endodontic procedure is through cleaning and shaping with generous irrigation. A through grasp of the internal anatomy and morphology of the root canal system is necessary for cleaning and shaping treatments. The two distinct canals in the mandibular anterior teeth were discovered during standard endodontic re treatments, which is the case in the given case report.
