Aim: To evaluate the root canal morphology of maxillary first premolar using Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). Materials and methods: A total of 125 teeth were selected and CBCT scans were taken and following factors were recordednumber of roots, number of root canals, anatomy, and configuration of canals. Results: Overall 88% teeth had two roots. Most frequent canal configuration was type I in 93.6%; 94.4% teeth had single canal exiting in single apical foramen. Conclusion: Within the
