Maxillary molars have highly variable root canal morphology. However, the presence of the two roots is a rare occurrence. The success of pulpectomy treatment depends on removal of infected pulp and filling it with a biocompatible material. In order to achieve it, the clinicians should understand the morphology of the individual root canal and atypical root canal configuration. The purpose of this article was to describe an unusual anatomy in primary maxillary second molar with missing successor tooth. BiodentineTM a new dentine substitute was used as an obturating material for retained maxillary second molar. After 24 months follow up, the success of BiodentineTM for management of primary tooth with missing successor was evaluated and reported.
