Abstract

This report presents a case treated both endodontically and surgically of a mandibular left canine tooth with two seperate inflammatory resorptive defects, one perforating the apical one-third. Following obturation with hybrid tecnique, mucoperiostal flap was performed and MTA was applied into the perforated resorptive cavity. At 1-year follow-up, the tooth was free of symptoms and complete healing was observed around the root in radiographic examination. At 2-year follow-up, the tooth was asymptomatic in clinically and radiologically. For postoperatif results of the treatment, sealing of perforation site with material such as MTA which has biocompatibility and good sealing properties may result in good clinical prognosis.
