The morphologic aberrations of root canals include bifurcation and trifurcation of canals which makes it difficult to diagnose and manage. The difficulty in identifying and treating such aberrations make it more prone to re-infection and persistence of infection in the root canal. Therefore the clinician should know the various morphologic aberrations occurring in the tooth before starting the treatment. The present case report is made to provide a clinical insight of one such variation. The case presents with mandibular left canine with 2 root canals and one root in a vertucci type II canal morphology. The tooth was treated endodontically and successfully managed.
