Maxillary central incisors usually have one root canal. The cases with two root canals with type IV vertucci canal configuration are extremely rare. Internal morphology of the root canals is variable and often complex. Better understanding of root canal complex is very essential for a clinician to ensure proper treatment. Computed tomography plays an excellent role in diagnosing such anatomical variations.
