Abstract The aim of this article is to present an endodontically managed maxillary first molar with an unusual morphology of a single root and a single canal, which has not been reported in the literature so far. An accurate assessment of this unusual morphology was made with the help of a Spiral computed tomography. This report extends the range of known possible anatomical variations to include teeth with lesser number of roots and canals. This report also highlights the role of Spiral computed tomography as an objective method to confirm the three-dimensional anatomy of teeth.
