Five root canals in peg lateral incisor with dens invaginatus: A case report with new nomenclature for the five canals.

Jaikailash S, Kavitha M, Ranjani MS, Saravanan B - J Conserv Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: This case report describes endodontic treatment completed in a peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisor, with single root and five root canals of which, one is due to dens invaginatus.Cone beam computed tomogram scanning confirmed the unique morphology of the tooth.New nomenclature for the five canals is proposed.

Mentions: A CBCT scanning was done to study the tooth morphology, which confirmed the presence of a single root with five canals with separate apical exit and a type III DI [Figure 2a and b].
