The study demonstrates the use of flowable composite in resolving the bilateral PGG and RCT followed by intentional reimplantation in treating the unilateral PGG.Conclusion: The cases reported utilize conservative and surgical endodontic approach for an endo perio lesion. The results demonstrate how these techniques may optimally help to maintain a tooth whose location in the arch is very critical.
