Consistent knowledge of developmental anomalies along with careful clinical and radiographic interpretation is essential pre-requisites for successful management. This case describes a 2-year follow-up of a case with carious mandibular right first premolar with two roots, three root canals and a deep periodontal probing depth along with an early Grade II furcation involvement. The tooth was endodontically treated followed by periodontal surgery, to eliminate the pocket and promote bone fill in the osseous and furcation defect. Hydroxyapatite graft composited with bioactive glass was utilized for enhancing bone formation. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  1. Detailed knowledge of root anomalies in mandibular premolars is a pre-requisite for successful management of combined endo-perio lesions.
  2. Periodontal regenerative procedure using hydroxyapatite graft can be performed to enhance bone formation.
  3. Use of radiographs and advanced diagnostic aids are recommended for clinical evaluation of tooth anomalies.
