AUTHOR(S): Gülşah Uslu and Taha Özyürek
ABSTRACT: The aim of this case report was to present the non-surgical root canal treatment of the geminated maxillary anterior lateral incisor tooth. A 50-year-old female patient was referred for endodontic treatment of her maxillary right lateral incisor. In the clinical examination, a large crown was observed in the right maxillary incisor region when compared with the left maxillary lateral incisor. There was a groove in the center of the crown extending from the buccal to the palatal region. The radiographic examination revealed that the morphology of the tooth’s root canal was Type II (2-1 canals) according to the Vertucci’s classification. In the light of the clinical and radiographic examination, the tooth was diagnosed as irreversible pulpitis and one-visit root canal treatment was achieved. At the one-year follow-up, clinical and radiographic examination revealed that there was no periapical or periodontal pathological findings related to the tooth and the tooth was fully asymptomatic.
