Thorough knowledge of root morphology and its associated root canal anatomy forms the prime basis for the success of any endodontic therapy. Although rare, variations in canal number and configuration could affect the treatment outcome. Managing these additional canals with abnormal morphology is a challenging task for every clinician. This case report presents the successful management of two maxillary first molars with aberrant root canal morphology. The first case has two palatal root canals with a total of five canals and the second case has two distobuccal canals.
