The root canal treatment of teeth with aberrant canal configuration can be challenging to treat successfully. Mandibular molars can have an additional root which may be termed on the basis of location as radix entomolaris (RE) if located lingually or the radix paramolaris (RP) if arose buccally. This report discusses endodontic treatment of three mandibular molars with (RE). Success of conservative endodontic approach depends on the proper identification and thorough chemo-mechanical preparation of all the three canals, master cone confirmation by radiograph followed by three dimensional obturation with bonding agent. This article presents three case reports of mandibular first molars with extra roots.

Key words:
Anatomical variation, Extra root, Mandibular molar, Radix Entomolaris
