    Aim and objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of a number of canals and its morphological variations in maxillary first molars using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) of patients reported to Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals. Methods: A total of 500 CBCTs were collected and the CBCTs were evaluated in all three planes to assess the number of canals and its variations. Result: The result of this study showed that around 80% of the maxillary first molars had MB2 canal and around 5% of the maxillary first molar had two palatal and distal canals, respectively. Conclusion: CBCT is a clinically useful tool in understanding the variations in root canal morphology, which guides in the assessment of the root canal morphology aiding in successful root canal treatment.
