Abstract

The case report describes the successful management of a right mandibular first molar with a periodontic-endodontic lesion in a 28-year-old female with aggressive periodontitis. The treatment carried out to treat this condition was primarily by endodontic treatment followed by regenerative periodontal therapy where the bone graft along with platelet-rich fibrin was used. The prognosis of the tooth was fair at the baseline. Along with the above treatments, patient's compliance played a major role in improving the prognosis of the tooth. Hence, treating periodontic-endodontic lesion is not a difficult task if all the protocols were being followed during the length of the treatment.
