Introduction: The Dens Invaginatus or Dens in dent it is the most common dental abnormal structure, this anatomic variation means a true clinic challenge because of its complex anatomy, however , thanks to the auxiliary tools for diagnosis just like Cone Beam Computerized Tomography, we can plan a good treatment to offer the best diagnosis. This article describes a clinic case about Dens in Dent in twenty one tooth with pulp necrosis and asymptomatic apical periodontitis. Cone Beam Computerized Tomography was requested, the image helped to classify the kind of Dens in Dent which is type II according to Oehlers´s classifi cation. It is instrumented, irrigated with ultrasound and sealed with “continuous wave of heat “technique. This technique ensures a radiographic success with six months of evolution. Currently, thanks to diagnostic methods and treatment aids such as ultrasound, gutta-percha injection system more effi cient treatments can be offered in endodontic therapeutics.

Keywords : Invaginatus tooth; dens in dent; asymptomatic apical periodontitis; invaginatus odontoma.
