Abstract

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.
