Introduction: An awareness and understanding of the presence of unusual root canal tooth morphology and its possible variations is valuable for successful endodontic treatment.
Objective: The objective of this study was to see the prevalence of Radix Entomolaris in population of Kashmir using radiographs.
Materials and Method: A total of 100 patients were included in the study and digital radiographs (RVG) were taken for their mandibular 1st permanent molars bilaterally. These radiographs were evaluated for presence of radix entomolaris and its correlation between the genders.
Results: The overall prevalence of individuals with radix entomolaris was 24%. The incidence was 75% for unilateral whereas 25% for bilateral.
Conclusion: Presence of radix entomolaris in high proportion of Kashmiri population needs careful clinical and radiologic evaluation to ensure high long term success of endodontic treatment of permanent molars.
