The phenomenon of supernumerary palatine roots and supernumerary canals in the palatal root of the first upper molar has been studied. In 2 of the 443 first upper molars examined, a supernumerary palatine root was found (incidence 0.5%). Supernumerary canals in the palatine root were detected in 4 samples, i.e. in 0.9% of the cases. The phenomenon of supernumerary roots and root canals is discussed and a presentation is made of the internal anatomy of the pulp chamber and of the location of roots and root canals in the palatine root.
