Dentists are likely to encounter lesions that have both periodontal and endodontic aetiological components; the so called ‘perio-endo lesions’. A thorough examination with appropriate investigations remains pivotal to diagnosing a ‘perio-endo lesion’. Correct diagnosis of such lesions is therefore important as it enables the most suitable clinical management to be treatment planned. It
is still recommended, that for the treatment of ‘perio-endo lesions’, initial endodontic therapy is completed.
