Abstract

The mandibular first molar tooth commonly has two well-defined roots. But, sometimes the appearance and number of roots show variations. The prevalence of supernumerary root associated with mandibular molar is less than 5% in Asian populations and the most common variant is the mandibular first molar with the presence of supernumerary roots distolingually.1
The present article reports a case in which drashvinivadane@gmail.com supplemental root is present mesiolingually associated with mandibular first molar. Hence, this is the rarest entity. This case was reported in the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of M.A. Rangoonwala College of Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Pune and its extraction was performed.

Keywords: Supplemental root, Additional root, Mandibular first molar, Radix entomolaris, Extraction.
