Endo-Perio Lesions

[Full Text]



Dr. Syed Wali Peeran, Madhumala Thiruneervannan, Khaled Awidat Abdalla, Marei Hamed Mugrabi





Abstract: Endo-Perio lesions are occasionally encountered complicated dental conditions, difficult to diagnose and treat. In this current review, various topics that will help clinicians in handling such situations have been summarized. Thus this article reviews the normal anatomic communications between the pulp and periodontium, aetiology of the endo-perio lesions, various available classifications, diagnosis, prognosis and decision-making in the treatment of these conditions.
