Endoperiodontal lesions are characterized by the presence of periodontal and pulpal disease within the same dental element. Periodontal and pulpal tissues are related to each other by lateral and accessory canals, the apical foramen, and the dentinal tubules. In the dental literature, whether periodontal disease affects pulpal disease or vice versa remains controversial. Pulpal disease is often accepted to cause periodontal disease. The treatment of endodontic-periodontal combined lesions requires both endodontic therapy and periodontal regenerative procedures. The success rate of treatment comprising only an endodontic procedure for such lesions is low. Periodontal regenerative therapy has been used widely to regenerate periodontium lost due to periodontal disease. This therapy is also very successful during the management of endodontic-periodontal lesions.
