Thu successful long-term management of multi­-rooted teeth with attachment loss extending into the furcation has been one of the greatest challenges to dentist. Furcation-involvement is not a separate entity but just an extension of inflammation into the: bi or trifurcation region. However treatment of lesions extending into this region becomes complicated due to the difficulty in instrumentation. Several treatment modalities have been proposed based on the grade of furcation involvement. This paper presents a case report of an endodontically, treated tooth with a furcation involvement. The interdependence of perio-endo lesions and the consequences of inadequate periodontal therapy following endodontic therapy is stressed in this Paper.
