Introduction: Dens invaginatus is a developmental mal- formation resulting from invagination of tooth crown or root before calcification and during odontogenesis. It is a critical condition for which endodontic treatment is essential, as it frequently presents a complex internal anatomy. Double dens invaginatus is an extremely rare condition. Objective: The present study reports a rare case of double dens invaginatus with large periapical lesion. Methods: Non-surgical endodontic treatment was carried out. Results: One year after treatment, clinical examination revealed asymptomatic teeth, while radiograph examination showed healing of the periapical lesion.
