Calcified root canal causes so many problems during endodontic treatment due to difficulty in canal orifice location, negotiation, preparation as well as consideration of operating time. Most serious problem may arise during any phase of root canal treatment procedure even taking a lot of precaution. In this case, traumatized calcified maxillary lateral incisor tooth of 21 years old was managed by conventional endodontic treatment. Radiographic assessments, knowledge of internal canal anatomy and time factors are very important to manage this type of problem. In addition, newer canal orifice locating devices, canal shaping and cleaning instruments and materials accelerate the operating procedure.

Keywords: Calcified root canal, Maxillary lateral incisor, Endodontic treatment.
