Dens Invaginatus (DI) is a developmental anomaly that implies the invagination of the enamel organ into the dental prior to calcification of the dental tissues. There is a lack of consensus regarding the etiology of this malformation. DI Type III implies an extension of the invagination into the root generating a second lateral or apical foramen and is the most complex form. Managing these teeth represents a challenge for dentists. The aim of this paper is to represent the multidisciplinary management of central maxillary incisor presenting with dens invaginatus Type IIIa associated with a latero-radicular lesion and to highlight the importance of Cone-beam computed tomography scan (CBCT) in posing accurate diagnosis and planning adequate treatment. The second aim is to acknowledge the role of new technologies and advances in enhancing the prognosis of such teeth.
