MAITA VELIZ, LV et al. Art and science in the diagnosis of atypical periodontal disease: case report. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2021, vol.37, n.2, pp.78-86.  Epub 05-Dez-2022. ISSN 2340-3152.

Pulp and periodontal lesions are the most prevalent in the oral cavity, and are the most frequent causes of dental consultation in our environment and in the world. These pathologies are mainly of bacterial etiology, with a polymicrobial flora. The anatomical and histological structures of the periodontal and pulp tissues present interrelationships that must be taken into account in the etiopathology of these processes. The diagnosis of endoperiodontal lesions is not always clearly defined, which constitutes certain gaps for the diagnosis. The dentist must be trained to perform the differential diagnosis of these two diseases and provide efficient treatment in our patients. A clinical case is reported, where the management of the clinical examination as well as the endoperiodontal anatomy is important to reach the correct diagnosis and its subsequent treatment.
