Variations in the root canals configuration is not uncommon. One of the common variation frequently encountered in mandibular molar is the C- shaped canal. The c-shaped canal configuration is difficult to identify radiographically and exhibit considerable difficulty in cleaning, shaping and obturation of the root canal system. Hence plasticized gutta-percha obturation methods have been recommended to obturate such canals, with most of them orienting towards the expensive thermoplasticized gutta-percha obturation technique.This case report shows that chemoplasticizing gutta- percha using rectified white turpentine as a solvent can be a suitable alternative to other methods of obturation of such complex root canals.
