Dens invaginatus is a developmental dental anomaly which is clinically seen as a furrow on the palatal aspect of the tooth either limiting to the coronal pulp or extending to the radicular apex. It occurs most commonly in females affecting crowns of the maxillary lateral incisors. This case report presents two bilateral cases of Type II radicular dens invaginatus in mandibular first premolars. It was an incidental diagnosis on an intraoral periapical radiograph when a 12-year-old male patient and a 12-year-old female patient reported with their respective chief complaints. Conservative management in the form of strict follow up of the cases was planned.
