Occurrence of dens invaginatus in maxillary canine is rare. This article reports a case of maxillary left canine with type III dens invaginatus associated with periapical pathology, which was managed successfully by apicocurettage of apical pathology and root canal treatment of both the main canal and invagination separately. Wide open invagination as well as incompletely formed root apex was sealed with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) through retrograde approach and tooth was obturated with MTA to fill all the irregularities present in the invagination and the main canal.
