Purpose: to introduce a new system for classifying tooth, root and canal anomalies for use in research, clinical practice and training.
Most highlighted Results:
•The new system does not reclassify anomalies already reported in the literature but rather aims to provide more comprehensive information on the morphological features of a specific tooth, root and canal within a single code.
It provides more detailed information on the morphological features of teeth essential for proper diagnoses and treatment as well as training and research.
New classification for anomalies in single-, double- and multirooted teeth
Root fusion (RF) in three-rooted teeth is an exception from the above in which all types should be written before the tooth number (TN).
