Limited data reports the occurrence of three or more canals in distal roots of mandibular first permanent molars. This paper presents and discusses a clinical report of root canal therapy in a permanent mandibular first molar and empahasises on the utilisation of magnification for the assessment, and acquaintance of the possible canal configuration, alongwith the management of middle distal canal of permanent mandibular first molar.
