Dens invaginatus is a rare anomaly that occurs due to deepening of enamel organ into the root, either fully or partially during tooth development. The purpose of this paper is to present a case of Oehler's type III dens invaginatus on a maxillary left lateral incisor with a large periapical lesion. Combined endodontic therapy and surgery showed good healing when the patient was evaluated clinically and radiographically after 1-year. This case report highlights the importance of proper debridement of the main canal of a case of dens invaginatus because of its complex anatomy.
