Infected pulp tissue is the major cause of periapical lesions, a majority of which are granulomas, radicular cysts or abscess. These lesions can only be diagnosed histologically. Root canal treatment or non surgical endodontic treatment is the treatment of choice in these cases without surgical intervention. Healing after the non surgical treatment takes place in about one year. In non surgical treatment emphasis is laid on thorough debridement, disinfection of the root canal system and obturation of canals. There are higher rate of healing in the anterior segment as compared to the posterior segment. The periapical index (PAI) is widely used measure to know the status of the periapical tissues. Thus, conventional endodontic therapy in combination with calcium hydroxide as an intracanal medicament contributed effectively in healing of periapical lesions in these cases.
