Healing of a Large Periapical Lesion- A Non Surgical Approach
M Rajesh Karthik, Varna R, Praveenkumar Ramdurg

Bacteria is considered as the etiological agents for most of the endodontic diseases. Mere surgical removal of the periapical lesions without proper root canal disinfection and obturation will not result in the healing of periapical tissues. When the treatment is done properly, healing usually happens by osseous regeneration, which is seen as reduction in radiolucency in subsequent radiographs. This case highlights follow up results of resolution of periapical pathology achieved through a non surgical approach, observed over a period of 12 months. Emphasis is laid on thorough debridement and three dimensional obturation of root canal system by a simple lateral condensation technique in the case. Key words: Periapical Lesion, Non Surgical, Obturation, Lateral Condensation
