Abstract

The purpose of this clinical report was to show anatomical variations in permanent maxillary second molar using computed tomography (CT). This case report describes the application of CT to detect the unusual root anatomy of maxillary second molar with 2 separate palatal roots for successful endodontic treatment procedures. The use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) can overcome the limitation of the periapical standard radiography caused by the overlap of buccal and secondary palatal roots.
