Prevalence of Accessory Canals in Primary Maxillary Molars: A Radiographic Analysis

Chithralekha B [2] | Dr. Mahesh Ramakrishanan


Abstract: Introduction: Root canal morphology of molars are complex. Unnoticed accessory canals can lead to the failure of the treatment while trying to save the teeth endodontically. Hence to deliver a successful treatment the clinician should be able to identify the accessory canals that can be present in primary molars. Aim: To evaluate the presence or absence of accessory canals in the primary molar teeth. Materials and Methods: In the study a total of 100 patients were selected. An excel data sheet was prepared based on the obtained information. The data was then coded and transferred to spss software and statistical analysis was done. Results: The association between the prevalence of accessory canals and the type of tooth were found to be statistically significant, in all the associations done the p value was found to be 0.000 (<0.05). Conclusion: Within the limitations of the study we found that the presence of accessory canal is not negligible when it comes to primary molars, and prevalence of it was found to be the highest in mandibular second molar.
