DENTAL ANATOMY

DENTAL ANATOMY: Here is an interesting one that came in today. Usually when we come across a 5 canal lower molar, it is usually in a first molar. Also, it will more commonly occur in first molars. Here we present a “5 canal” lower molar in a second molar, with the extra canal in the distal aspect as opposed to mesial aspect. Maybe not as cool since 2 of the 3 distal canals share one common exit each, but pretty photos nonetheless…all in the efforts to eviscerate pulp tissue…
