Permanent mandibular canines show the least diversities among anatomical variations in roots and root canals, however in endodontics anatomic variability is the rule rather than the exception. Therefore, the knowledge and identification of these variabilities is paramount for successful endodontic treatment. This article presents a case of endodontic treatment of permanent mandibular canine with two roots and two root canals.
