  1. Periodontics


In compromised teeth with periodontal–endodontic lesions, the decision to extract or maintain the teeth is complex while considering the endodontic, periodontal and reconstructive aspects of these teeth. Extraction of teeth with untreatable periodontal–endodontic lesions having severe alveolar bone damage can lead to difficulty in their surgical management. Various treatment approaches are available following the extraction of compromised teeth based on the patients’ risk profile, and clinical and radiographic evaluation.
