The basis of successful endodontic therapy resides on sound and thorough knowledge of the root canal anatomy, its variations and the clinical skills. The importance of the knowledge of the anatomy of root canals cannot be overemphasized. Unusual root and root canal morphologies associated with maxillary molars have been reported in several studies, in the literature. The morphology of the maxillary first molar has been studied and reviewed extensively. However the presence of two roots in a maxillary first molar is a rare occurrence and such cases have seldom been reported in literature. This clinical report presents a permanent maxillary first molar with an unusual morphology of two roots with two canals.
