Endodontic treatment has become faster and safer with the development of technologies, allowing effective procedures and greater comfort for both the professional and the patient. The use of Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) has brought benefits for the pre, trans and post-operatory phases, making it a great tool to evaluate treatment evolution. This study emphasized the follow-up of an extensive periapical radiolucency case, through periapical radiographs and tomographic examinations in 30 days, 150 days and one-year time lapse. The equipment and materials applied made it possible to perform the treatment efficiently. In the 1-year postoperative period, signs of periapical radiolucency repair, bone neoformation and absence of CBCT-proven symptoms were radiographically shown, indicating the success of the proposed therapy.
