Maxillary incisor teeth have been known to have single root with a single root canal widely. The reports of anatomical variations regarding the root number of maxillary anterior teeth are limited. This case report describes the nonsurgical endodontic retreatment of a rare case of two-rooted maxillary lateral incisor tooth, emphasizing the importance of three-dimensional imaging techniques for the diagnosis of anatomical variations. A 32-year-old patient was referred for the endodontic evaluation of his tooth #22 because of failed root canal treatment. Cone-beam computed tomography revealed a palatally located extra root. Nonsurgical endodontic retreatment was performed. At the 4th month follow-up, the tooth was asymptomatic and functional.
