Abstract

One of the known aberrations in root canal morphology of maxillary second permanent molars is the presence of collateral mesiobuccal canals. This case report describes the endodontic management of a maxillary second molar that had a single fused root with six canals that was successfully managed with the aid of dental operating microscope. Six canal orifices were located namely MB1 (Mesiobuccal), MB2, MB3, DB1 (Distobuccal), DB2 and palatal. During the cleaning and shaping, instrument separation occurred at the apical third of the palatal canal which was removed with ultrasonics. After cleaning and shaping, the canals were obturated with resin sealer and laterally condensed gutta-percha. The patient was recalled for periodic review. After two years of follow up the patient remained asymptomatic. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) evaluation revealed satisfactory periapical status.
