ABSTRACT Periodontal diseases are infections caused by microorganisms that colonize the tooth surface at or below the gingival margin. Chronic periodontittis is an infectious disease resulting in inflammation within the supporting tissues of the teeth, progressive attachment loss and bone loss. It is generally considered to be a slowly progressing disease. Tooth related anomalies act as a predisposing factor for the progression of the periodontitis by providing a conducive environment for plaque accumulation. This case report describes and explains the treatment of a 20-year-old female patient suffering from chronic periodontitis, with endo-perio lesion in maxillary first molar and palatogingival groove in maxillary lateral incisor. The treatment was done with an Interdisciplinary (periodontic, endodontic, restorative) approach. Periodontal therapy included non-surgical (Phase-I therapy) and surgical phase (Modified flap procedure with distal wedge procedure). Endodontic and Restorative treatment was done simultaneously. Hence a healthy and stable periodontium with successful functional final results was achieved.
