Abstract

This case report shows an unusual internal anatomy of a mandibular second molar with a single root canal. Once thorough shaping and cleaning of the root canal was done, the canal was obturated with a non-heated flowable silicon based obturation material (Gutta-Flow). This obturating material was used since it has the advantage of easy handling, insolubility, good adaptability and sealing ability. This case report reinforces the fact that clinicians should have adequate knowledge of the root canal morphology and its variations to achieve a technically satisfactory endodontic outcome.
