Periapical diseases are induced as a result of the direct or indirect involvement of oral bacteria. The etiologic factor being the degenerating pulp tissue. A periapical lesion is formed within an area of apical periodontitis which cannot form by itself and is inflammatory in origin. If the microbial etiology of periapical lesions and in the root canal is removed by nonsurgical root canal therapy the lesions regress. Mere surgical removal of the periapical lesions without proper root canal disinfection and obturation will not result in the healing of periapical tissues. Nonsurgical treatment with triple antibiotic paste offers a high success rate in the healing of large periapical lesions. The present clinical cases show the nonsurgical endodontic management of large periapical pathosis using triple antibiotic paste and mineral trioxide aggregate.
