Abstract


Endodontic treatment aims to restore tooth’s function and shape as well as maintaining a healthy periradicular condition. However, the occurrence of dental anatomy variations may difficult and/or compromise the efficacy of the treatment. The present study aimed to undertake a review of the literature on the anatomical variations, which may interfere with endodontic treatment. It was found several studies containing information about anatomical variations affecting different groups of teeth and auxiliary diagnostic methods. Thus, it becomes evident the importance of such knowledge to endodontic treatment success.
