Abstract


1. INTRODUCTION:
Proper diagnosis and correct identification of number of roots and root
canals are very crictical in determining success of an Endodontic
treatment. Missed root canals is major reason of the failure of

two or three root canals has been reported to be as low as 1% and as
high as 43%. Mandibular Cuspids are recognized as having one root
and one root canal in the majority of cases. Researchers have reported
on the anatomical variations associated with mandibular canines and

two foramina.[2] The mandibular canines do not always display the
basic anatomy that we expect with one root and one canal.
