Pradeep, Avani Raju / Patel, Swati Pradeep / Nagaraja, Chaitra
Abnormal dental morphology and position have been associated with severe periodontal diseases due to increased plaque accumulation and unfavourable gingival contour. Restoring the favourable contour becomes an important part of the treatment in such cases and can be challenging for the dental practitioner. This case report highlights the multidisciplinary approach for the management of an endodontically periodontally involved molar fused to a supernumerary tooth. The treatment needs and sequence for the management of endodontic-periodontic lesions are discussed and illustrated.
