Successful endodontic treatment depends upon the clinician’s precise knowledge and ability to manage complex internal anatomy in order to avoid failure during endodontic treatment. Mandibular canines normally have single root with centrally placed single canal and internal anatomy as simple as could be expected, but there are such canines with a single root with two canals, two roots or fused roots. The occurrence of two canal joining to one for a men may be a rare entity with 4-15% prevalence. Canine is the cornerstone of mouth due to its position and very important as abutment for any type of restoration, so long term success of the restorative depend directly on the quality of endodontic treatment. This article presents a case series of successful endodontic management of mandibular canine with two canals which merge into one canal with one foramina and mandibular canine with two roots and two canals.
