Abstract

Normally the permanent mandibular first molar has two roots, mesial and distal. But mandibular molars may have an additional root located either buccally (radix paramolaris) or lingually (radix entomolaris). Understanding of the presence of an additional root and its root canal anatomy is essential for successful treatment outcome.The aim of this paper is to review the prevalence and morphology of radix entomolaris and to present two cases of permanent mandibular first molars with an additional third root (radix entomolaris) in Indian population. In this study we did clinical investigation of two case; One case of successful endodontic management of permanent mandibular first molar characterized as radix entomolaris. Whereas second one is a presentation of a case of severe bone loss around permanent first molar with an additional third root. Presence of an additional third root in permanent mandibular first molars may affect the prognosis of tooth if it is misdiagnosed. Thus, an accurate diagnosis and thorough understanding of variation in root canal anatomy is essential for treatment success.
