Primary mandibular first molar with single root and single canal: a case report of a rare morphology.

Bahrololoomi Z, Ghafourifard R, Soleimani AA - J Dent (Tehran) (2014)

Bottom Line: Single rooted primary mandibular first molar is a rare developmental anomaly.Thorough knowledge of root canal morphology and anatomical variations of primary teeth can help a pediatric dentist in successful root canal treatment.Hereby, we describe two cases of primary mandibular first molars with an unusual morphology as a single root called pyramidal molar.

ABSTRACT
Single rooted primary mandibular first molar is a rare developmental anomaly. Literatures reveal that failure of invagination of Hertwig's epithelial root sheath leads to this unusual root form. Thorough knowledge of root canal morphology and anatomical variations of primary teeth can help a pediatric dentist in successful root canal treatment. Hereby, we describe two cases of primary mandibular first molars with an unusual morphology as a single root called pyramidal molar.

f3-jod-11-355: Preoperative periapical radiograph showing the right deciduous mandibular first molar with a single root

Mentions: The preoperative periapical radiographs showed caries involving the pulp in the primary madibular right and left first molars. Another interesting finding was presence of a single root with one broad canal in the primary mandibular right first molar (Figure 3), while the primary mandibular left first molar showed taurodontism (Figure 4).
