A wide array of anatomical variations present to dentists from time to time. The mandibular third molars are not far away in this context. Many a time, extraction remains the choice of treatment because of their most posterior location and unpredictable anatomy. In terms of anatomy, an extra distolingual root (radix entomolaris) poses a serious challenge, and it is very rare as well.

The aim of this article is to present article the successful endodontic management of a mandibular third molar with three roots and four root canals.
