A comprehensive knowledge of the root canal anatomy is essential for successful endodontic treatment. However, presence of anatomic variation in the tooth can be diagnostically and technically challenging and hence may pose difficulties during endodontic therapy. The anatomical variations associated with permanent mandibular canines have been reported by several investigators. Mandibular canines are recognized as usually having one root with one root canal in majority of cases. The occurrence of two root canals in single-rooted mandibular canine is considered unusual in Indian population. This case report describes non-surgical endodontic management of right permanent mandibular canine having one root with two canals and one apical foramen (Vertucci Type II).

Keywords: Anatomical variation, Endodontic management, Mandibular canine, Vertucci type II
