Dr. Ashwini Kelode, Dr. Priyanka Madale, Dr. Sushilkumar Cirigiri

Abstract: ABSTRACT:- It is of utmost importance that the clinician is familiar with root and root canal anatomy. Radix entomolaris (RE) is considered to be an Asiatic trait. However, its prevalence in Indian population is found to be lower than in other Asian races .The initial diagnosis of a radix entomolaris or paramolaris before root canal treatment is important to facilitate the endodontic procedure, and to avoid ?missed? canals. This article presents case reports on the detection and endodontic management of distinctive anatomy; RE in Mandibular ?rst molar. Radix entomolaris was detected by identifying the presence of a double or extra root outline in the preoperative radiograph, modifying the access opening and closely inspecting the pulp chamber and was endodontically treated following cleaning, shaping, and obturation of the canals. Achieving the endodontic success in the presence of an RE requires knowledge about its prevalence, diagnosis, morphology, canal con?guration, and clinical approach.
