Abstract


“The successful endodontic management of a mandibular first molar with seven canals is diagnostically and clinically challenging. Based on a few in vitro studies, its incidence is 0.2% to 3% 6.  The foremost challenge in management of a two-rooted mandibular first molar with seven canals lies in the careful diagnosis and exploration of all canals. The intricate network of canals within the same root increases the perplexity of the cleaning and shaping procedures and may lead to various mishaps in endodontics. This case report discusses the successful nonsurgical management of a two rooted  mandibular first molar with four mesial and three distal canals which is an infrequent occurrence as scarce as hen’s teeth.”
