Abstract

Aim: To treat the palatogingival groove, an endo-perio entity with conservative and surgical endodontic approach.Objective: Potential use of flowable composite and root canal therapy along with intentional reimplantation in the treatment of palatogingival groove in maxillary lateral incisors.Case description: Two cases with unilateral and bilateral PGG have been reported. 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.
