A thorough knowledge of the root canal morphology is essential for the endodontic therapy of primary teeth. Variations in the root canal systems in primary teeth can create a challenge to the practitioners during endodontic treatment. Meticulous cleaning and filling of all the root canals in all its dimensions, helps to eliminate or reduce the microbial load in the canals. The dentists should be aware of such variations and should be motivated to look for them in order to avoid post-operative complications. This article discusses the endodontic management of two primary maxillary second molars and one primary mandibular first molar with additional canals.

Key Words: 
Primary Molars, Root Canal Morphology, Anatomic Variation, Extra Root Canals
