A total of 328 periapical x-rays from 105 patients of Mongolian origin, 106 of Negro origin and 117 of Caucasian origin were studied. The Mongolian race showed a greater incidence of three-rooted mandibular molars (15.2% of the Mongolian patients, 7.5% of the Negro patients and 6.8 of the Caucasian patients). There was no statistical difference in relation to sex and the incidence of this extra root.
