This clinical case report demonstrates the successful management of a complex endodontic-periodontal iatrogenic lesion following a critical evaluation and decision-making process with interdisciplinary treatment strategies.


Defective dental restorations can affect the periodontal and endodontic health of the teeth.

Case Report

An endodontic-periodontal lesion that resulted from a faulty restoration in a 30-year-old male patient is reported. The management of the case is done through periodontal and endodontic treatment. The detailed method of managing of this type of cases is discussed.


In conclusion, the use of a systematic diagnosis process will help in the identification and treatment of iatrogenic endodontic-periodontal lesions.

Clinical significance

The correct management of endodonticperiodontal lesions can impede the loss of the involved teeth.
