Abstract

The periodontium consists of gingiva, cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. This is the fact that the periodontium is anatomically interrelated with dental pulp by virtue of apical foramina and lateral canals which create pathways for exchange of noxious agents between these two tissues. When the pulp becomes infected, the disease can progress beyond the apical foramen and affects the PDL. The inflammatory process results in formation of inflammatory tissue, which if not treated can result in resorption of alveolar bone, cementum and dentin. When examining and treating the combined or individual endodontic and periodontal lesions, the clinician must bear in mind that successful treatment depends on a correct diagnosis. Lesion with a combined cause will requires both endodontic and periodontal therapy and endodontic therapy should usually be completed first.
