Received Date: May 22, 2015 / Accepted Date: Jul 08, 2015 / Published Date: Jul 11, 2015
Dens invaginatus occurs as a result of invagination of the enamel organ. These cases may present difficulties with respect to its diagnosis and treatment because of canal morphology. It frequently leads to caries, pulpal, and periodontal involvement with necrosis and loss of attachment. The knowledge of classification and anatomical variations of teeth with dens invaginatus are of utmost importance for correct treatment. This paper presents two cases of dens invaginatus and its treatment depending on the patient symptoms either by prophylactic sealing or root canal treatment.
