Abstract
Effective endodontic treatment comprises proper diagnosis, meticulous cleaning and shaping followed by three dimensional obturation. Failure to do so may lead to postoperative diseases, pain and further complications. Mandibular second premolars are usually single rooted with single root canal. Variations of having more than one canal/root also exist but variation is less as compared to mandibular first premolar. This case report describes endodontic management of mandibular second premolars with three root canals.
