The major goals of root canal treatment are to remove irritants from the root canal system, fill or obturate the cleaned and shaped system, and prevent future recontamination of sealed root canals. However, endodontic treatment is also dependent on having sound knowledge of the internal anatomy of human teeth, especially when anatomic variations are present, clinicians should carefully explore the pulpal floor, further by changing the X-ray projection angle to confirm the existence of variation and prevent the missed canals, all of which are necessary for a successful root canal therapy. These clinical case reports present the application of cone-beam computed tomography as a useful imaging technique in endodontics for the management of teeth with aberrant anatomy.
