Introduction: The interdisciplinary approach has been a trend for a comprehensive dental treatment. Within modern dentistry, Periodontics, Endododntics and Prosthodontics share an intimate and inseparable relationship in multiple aspects, including treatment plan, procedures execution, outcome achievement and maintenance. To ensure an overall successful treatment since these specialties share a common goal: to create pleasing esthetic with a harmonious stomatognathic system.

Objective: This case series demonstrates the use of periodontal intervention in endodontically complicated cases with questionable prognosis which were finally rehabilitated with multidisciplinary approach. Surgical Periodontics is good option for salvaging such complicated cases which can be brought back to function by final prosthetic management.

Methodology: 02 clinical cases molars were treated with periodontal surgery involving, hemi section and followed by PFM crowns. Both cases were followed up for a period of 1 year by clinically and radio graphically.

Result: 01 year of follow up showed favorable and predictable result. Both patients presented adequate chewing efficiency with wellmaintained oral hygiene around the prosthesis. None of the patients were shown any further deterioration one year post operatively. The patients are comfortably using the teeth for proper mastication without any further clinical discomforts.

Conclusion: In this case presentation, the scope of multi-disciplinary approach has been outlined to aid the dental team in salvaging endodontically complicated cases.
