  author={Carmen L{\'u}cia Mueller Storrer and Giuliana Martina Bordin and Tarc{\'i}sio Tavares Pereira},
Objective: This literature review aims to assess the causes and consequences of periodontal-endodontic lesions, as well as its clinical, radiographic and microbiological aspects. Literature review: Periodontal-endodontic lesions are often changes that affect all teeth due to the close relationship between pulp and periodontium. Many authors researched about this, but there are many disagreements on the subject, starting with the different types of classification, in which many are based on the…

The false pathways were predominant in the age group of 35 to 59 years, the incisors were the most affected teeth, most of the lesions occurred during endodontic therapy, and more than a quarter of the patients were associated with periodontitis.

The various clinical aspects to be considered for accurately diagnosing and treating endo-perio lesions are discussed.

If the root canal system is infected, endodontic treatment should be commenced prior to any periodontal therapy in order to remove the intra-canal infection before any cementum is removed, avoiding several complications and provides a favourable situation for tissue repair.

Periodontal disease, bacteria, and pulpal histopathology.

Rationale for the application of the GTR principle using a barrier membrane in endodontic surgery: a proposal of classification and literature review.

A classification system of endodontic and periodontal lesions with respect to the application of the membrane technique is presented and the pertinent literature based upon this classification system is reviewed.


Direct bacterial invasion through auxiliary or apical canals exposed by periodontal disease occurs, and this anatomicopathologic mechanism may explain certain cases of so-called "idiopathic" pulpitis or other cases attributed to anachoresis.

The results of a combination of local and systemic antibiotics and the use of guided tissue regeneration with resorbable membranes and grafting material is demonstrated and all six treatments were considered successful.

Bacterial invasion in root cementum and radicular dentin of periodontally diseased teeth in humans. A reservoir of periodontopathic bacteria.

It is suggested that the roots of periodontally diseased teeth could act as bacterial reservoirs from which recolonization of mechanically treated root surfaces can occur, as well as infection of the dental pulp.

Pain, altered vitality of the pulp, suppuration, periodontal pockets, and radiographic changes may be associated with both periodsontal and pulpal disorders.

Endodontic treatment of experimental root perforations in dog teeth.

Experimental root perforations were made in 131 teeth of 5 mongrel dogs and the histologic reaction was dominated by inflammation and downgrowth of gingival epithelial tissue, regardless of observation time, technique or material used.
