For successful clinical outcomes in endodontics, a thorough knowledge of root canal morphology, adequate clinical and radiographic assessment, and the use of newer diagnostic aids are required. This case report describes the diagnosis and endodontic management of a three-rooted left maxillary first molar which had three roots and seven canals (MB1, MB2, MB3, DB1, DB2, MP, and DP). This unusual morphology of the maxillary first molar was confirmed using a cone-beam computed tomography scan. This article discusses the morphology of the maxillary first molar and how to successfully diagnose and negotiate the extra canals using the most up-to-date techniques.
