									   TREATMENT OF COMBINED ENDODONTIC- PERIODONTIC LESIONS BY GTR
   TECHNIQUE



   Clinicians often have difficulty in the diagnosis and treatment of the combined endo- perio lesions. A
   case of an endo- perio true – combined lesion on a maxillary lateral incisor was first treated with
   conventional endodontic therapy. Periodontal surgery was then completed, which included scaling, root
   planning and apical curettage. Hydroxyapatite material was placed in the bony defect. GTR membrane
   was used to cover the graft material and flap was sutured. This combined treatment resulted in minimal
   probing depth (2mm), maximal clinical attachment gain, as well as radiographic evidence of alveolar
   bone gain. This case report demonstrates that proper diagnosis, followed by removal of etiological
   factors and utilizing the GTR technique with osseous grafting, will restore health and function to a tooth
   with severe attachment loss caused by an endo- perio lesion.
