Background: For effective endodontic therapy, a thorough understanding of root canal morphology and variations is required. The final effectiveness of therapy is influenced by the detection and appropriate clearance of all channels in the root canal system. It is critical to understand and use in order to aid in the diagnosis of MB2 canal identification. Recent investigations have revealed that CBCT imaging has high accuracy values.
Objective: From the data collected of CBCT; Measurement of mesial root length, Detection of presence of MB 2 canal, determining the canal configuration using Vertucci’s classification and Evaluation of correlation ship of mentioned parameters; in maxillary first permanent molar.
Methodology: After collecting, Retrospective CBCT data from January 2020 to January 2022, from department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Sharad Pawar Dental College, Wardha. On a CBCT scan, the MB2 canal will be evaluated. The photographs were evaluated on a 14-inch monitor with a resolution of 19201080 pixels using 8 Care stream 9300 software in a calm, poorly lit environment. The MB root will be analyzed in all multi planar reconstruction (MPR) with free use of enhancing techniques as images are reoriented. Any inconsistencies will be noticed and discussed in order to reach an agreement.
Conclusion: This study will help to examine the link between the MB-2 canal architecture, associated root length, and Vertucci's classification in permanent maxillary first molar teeth using CBCT data.
