Endodontic treatment of a maxillary lateral incisor with two roots; a case report with 6 months follow-up.

Hoseini A, Abbaszadegan A - J Dent (Shiraz) (2014)

Bottom Line: Maxillary lateral incisors are widely known to be single rooted with one root canal.Although rare cases with root canal variations are being reported in many populations, the reports regarding Iranian population is extremely limited.In this report, we are presenting the endodontic treatment of a double rooted maxillary lateral incisor.

ABSTRACT
Maxillary lateral incisors are widely known to be single rooted with one root canal. Although rare cases with root canal variations are being reported in many populations, the reports regarding Iranian population is extremely limited. In this report, we are presenting the endodontic treatment of a double rooted maxillary lateral incisor. These rare root-canal variations should be considered in pretreatment evaluations by clinicians who perform endodontic treatments.

Mentions: The absence of any vital pulp tissue or bleeding re-confirmed our initial diagnosis. Working length was then determined radiographically with a k-file # 35 (Mani, Japan) for the buccal canal and a k-file # 15 for the palatal root canal (Figure 3a). The working length measurements were also verified by Root ZX electronic apex locator (J Morita Corp; Kyoto, Japan). The root canals were prepared with passive step back technique up to the file #50 for the buccal canal and # 35 for the palatal root canal in the apical, using hand instrumentation. Gates Glidden drills (Dentsply; Maillefer, Baillaigues, Switzerland) were also employed to enlarge middle and coronal parts of the roots.
