Welcome to the first Endospot Case of Note. This case is of a C-Shaped lower molar and I’ve tried my best to highlight the interesting aspects of the case, explain what can be seen using our diagnostic tools, and also how to treat these cases. As usual, I would love to hear your thoughts and you can leave a comment below.
If you want to review the anatomical variations of C-shaped canals, I recommending reading the following references:
Fan B, Cheung GS, Fan M, Gutmann JL, Bian Z (2004). C-shaped canal system in mandibular second molars: Part 1 Anatomical features. Journal of Endodontics 30(899-903.
