The maxillary first molar usually has single palatal root. Incidence rate of maxillary first molar with two palatal roots is especially rare. We reported a case of young maxillary first molar with two palatal roots in this article. Anatomic characteristic of permanent maxillary molar is generally described as a group of teeth with three roots, one palatal and two buccalbut the root canal system is complexed. The second mesiobuccal root was common finding of the teeth studied, the second distobuccal and palatal root was rare. We reported the unusual variation in root and canal morphology of one four-rooted maxillary first molar with two palatal roots.
