Faculty of Dental Sciences, BHU, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India.
This case report describes endodontic management of mandibular second premolar with type-III Vertucci root canal configuration, in a 42-year-old female patient. She reported to the department for root canal treatment intended for prosthetic purpose. Vertucci type-III configuration (one common canal in coronal part, two distinct canals in the middle third of root which ended with a common apex) has been reported less worldwide; in range of 1.5%-6.66% only. Clinical examination revealed access opening which was restored with Zinc Oxide Eugenol (ZnOE). Radiographs showed minimal periapical changes, no widening of periodontal ligament space and lamina dura was intact. Clinician should have thorough knowledge of the pulp canal system so that an effective treatment can be provided.
