Abstract

FUENTES, Ramón  and  BORIE, Eduardo. Bilateral Two-rooted Mandibular Canines in the Same Individual: a Case Report. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.3, pp.471-473. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2013000300021.

The normal anatomy of canines teeth comprises one root and one large canal centered through its axis; however some canines may present two roots and two canals. Thus, the knowledge of normal root canal anatomy and their variations is essential to minimize the possibility of occurrence of accidents during the development of dental treatments. In this report we describe a case of bilateral mandibular canines with two roots and two canals found radiographically in the same individual.

Keywords : dental morphology; mandibular canine; root anatomy.
