Abstract|ملخص البحث

Mandibular premolars are one of the most difficult teeth to treat endodontically because of the variations in root canal anatomy(1). There are only a few endodontic publication citing an incidence of mandibular 2nd premolar with 3 root canals. Thorough knowledge of the basic root canal morphology as well as the possible anatomic variations is important for the successful treatment of such cases. This article describes the successful endodontic treatment of mandibular 2nd premolar with 3 root canals treated with the help of operating microscope in a patient with more than two canals also in the contralateral side second premolar. The success of endodontic treatment depends upon thorough debridement and complete obturation of the entire root canal system. For this the knowledge of roots and root canal morphology as well as the possible anatomic variations becomes very important (2,3). The canal morphology of mandibular 2nd premolar can be very complex and variable. Different studies have looked at the root canal morphology of mandibular premolars over years and reported a fairly high percentage of these teeth to have more than one canal.(4-6) Zillich and Dowson (7) have reported that an incidence of 0.4% of mandibular second premolars with three canals. Vertucci(8) does not report any case of mandibular second premolar with three or more canals at the apex. The incidence of three roots is extremely rare (0.1%). Such anatomic variations are quite possible and shouldn’t be thought of as exceptional. Dental operating microscope, with its magnification and illumination helps in the easy detection of hidden canals and allows a more detailed vision of the internal root canal system. With the use of microscope the success rate has definitely increased in the recent past. This article describes the successful endodontic treatment of mandibular 2nd premolar with three root canals with the help of dental operating microscope.
