Post‑treatment endodontic disease is often a result of inadequate cleaning and shaping of root canal system. Teeth with unusual canal morphologies are probably more prone to treatment failures due to insufficient knowledge of canal anatomy and aberrations associated with it.The aim of this study was to find the prevalence of occurrence of Extracanal in lower mandibular anterior teeth.
Materials and methods:
A retrospective cross-sectional study was carried out which included the patient’s details by assessing the report from June 2019 and May 2021. The inclusion criteria were : Patient’s age, gender, Presence of extra canal and Teeth number. From this we obtained 21 patients who underwent Root Canal treatment . Data was tabulated in Excel and imported to SPSS.The type of statistical analysis used in this study was Correlation and Association.
From the results , we observed that People of the age range 41-60 years who received Root Canal treatment were at a higher rate (33.33%). Male patients who received Root Canal Treatment were at a higher rate (57.14%). Extra canals were present in 42 at a higher rate (23.81%). Presence of the MB2 canal was seen at a higher rate(52.38%). MB2 canal was present in a higher incidence among 21-40years age group people. Male patients were highly incidental having MB2 canal.
MB2 canal was present in a higher incidence 42. Hence, identification of the extra canals and instrumentation is important in the prevention of unsuccessful treatment outcomes.
