Root canal procedure on molar presenting with an extra mesio palatal (MP) root. A very rare anatomical variation.
This supernumerary root has been noticed on pre operative X ray image and following the grooves on the pulp chamber floor that led to its very large root canal entry made its location quite straightforward. Extending the access cavity prior to shaping this root canal has been mandatory in order to prevent any apical ledge or endodontic instruments breakage.
Endodontic procedure instrumentation has been performed with Mani stainless K endodontic files and ProTaper Universal (Dentsply). Chelator: RC Prep. PUI Irrigation: Sodium hypochlorite 5%. Sealer used: Pulp Canal Sealer. Obturation technique warm vertical condensation (WVC). X Ray Sensors used: CareStream Kodak 6100
