AUTHOR(S): Hasan ÖZ and Ahmet AKAY
ABSTRACT:The objective of this study is to evaluate the root canal morphology of mandibular canine teeth in the population of the South-eastern Anatolia of Turkey with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). The CBCT images of 400 patients (795 teeth in total) with at least one of the mandibular canine teeth were included in the study. The root canal morphology was evaluated according to the Vertucci classification. The chi-square test was used to compare the frequencies and ratios of the types determined by the Vertucci classification with respect to the age and gender. In our study, the most common root canal morphology in mandibular canine teeth was type I (86.29%). The incidence of two roots in mandibular canine teeth was 2.26%. The incidence of two canals was 12.78% and 14.65% in the right and left canine teeth, respectively. Considering the variation of two canals and two roots in canal treatments performed on the mandibular canine teeth; including additional roots and canals would increase the success of the treatment.
