ABUABARA, Allan et al. Identification of root canals in maxillary molars using cone beam computed tomography. RSBO (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.7, n.1, pp. 117-120. ISSN 1984-5685.

INTRODUCTION: Knowledge on variations in the root canal system is essential for a successful endodontic treatment. OBJECTIVE: To present a case of identification of root canals in the maxillary left first molar, including the fourth root canal in the mesiobuccal root, using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). CONCLUSION: The CBCT system proved to be relevant in providing important information on the root canal system for the planning of endodontic treatment in cases of persistent infection or access difficulties.

Palavras-chave : maxillary first molar; root canal; root canal ramifications; Endodontics; cone beam computed tomography.
