Pulpal and periodontal problems are responsible for more than 50% of tooth mortality today. There is general agreement today that the vast majority of pulpal and periodontal lesions are a result of bacterial infection. Under which conditions and especially in which direction spread of the disease occurs in the pulpo-periodontal continuum remains a matter of controversy. Diagnosis is complicated by the fact that these diseases are too frequently viewed as independent entities when recognition of their interrelationship is critical to successful resolution & treatment of these lesions often requires combined periodontic & endodontic therapy
