Introduction: The goals of root canal treatment are thorough cleaning and shaping of root canal system for elimination of microbes and prepare the canal system for receiving the inert materials. For achieving this goals a thorough knowledge of root canal system anatomy should be occurs, all the canal should be located and proper cleaning should be done, but some tooth have different anatomy which causes increase the failure rates of root canal treatments like radix entomolaris and radix paramolaris.
This paper highlighted the case series of radix entomolaris, a developmental variations occurring on mandibular molars which is associated with extra root and extra canal in unusal position. This extra root may be present on lingual side and canal should be located between the mesiolingual to distal canal these called redix entomolaris, other variant is called radix paramolaris in which extra root present on buccal side and canal located between mesio buccal canal to distal canal. Hence it is mandatory to take preoperative radiographs [take radiographs in mesial and distal angulations] and minute inspection of dentinal maps is necessary.

Keywords: Radix entomolaris, Radix paramolaris, Irreversible pulpitis, Periapical radioleucency.
