Periodontal involvements in endodontic lesions

The appropriate evaluation of the pulpal condition together with the radiographic evaluation and the specificity of periodontal probing are the main signs to define a combined periodontal-endodontic lesion. A negative response to pulp sensibility test of a non endodontically treated tooth coexisting with a deep periodontal defect make the diagnosis of endo-perio lesion pretty sure. In the presence of a positive pulp sensitivity response or already endodontically treated tooth the diagnosis and consequently the therapeutic decisions become very challenging for the clinician.The most challenging situation is when a deep bony defects is associated with positive response to pulp tests. Focus of the lecture is to characterize the parameters of pulpal disorders and periodontal lesion in order to suggest the endodontic/periodontal strategy.
