Abstract

Dens invaginatus (DI) is an anomaly of developmental origin arising due to disturbances during the morphodifferentiation stage, resulting from infolding of enamel organ toward the dental papilla. Different presentations of the invagination, altered canal morphology, and presence of constrictions and dilatations sometimes make its management really challenging. With the advent of modern diagnostic and treatment aids, their easy availability and routine use, it is now possible to have detailed view of the invagination, thus making the management easy and the outcome predictable. This article presents two different presentations of DI and their management.
