The success of an endodontic treatment depends upon the through debridement, disinfection and three dimensional fluids tight sealing of the canals. In order to achieve this, clinicians must be familiar with the normal configuration of root canal system and its potential variations with aberrations. Mandibular anterior teeth are usually perceived as teeth with single root canal. However, the anatomy of mandibular anterior teeth is not always as simple as it is expected. Hence, one of the main reasons for failure of endodontic treatment in mandibular anterior teeth is the missed lingual canal or an untreated isthmus. This clinical case report aims to present a rare entity of two separate canals in five mandibular anterior teeth, detected during routine endodontic treatment in a single patient.
