Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

While dental pulp and the periodontium are two distinct tissues, there are many potential routes of interaction between them, such as the apical foramen, dentinal tubules, lateral and accessory canals, anatomical variations, pathological conditions and treatment complications such as root fractures or perforations. Following bacterial colonization, the exposure of endodontic biofilm to the periodontium and vice versa may initiate pathological processes in these tissues.

This Special Issue will present the current research on the etiological factors of endodontic–periodontal lesions, classifications, prognoses and modern approaches to the clinical management of these pathologies using endodontic, periodontal, and restorative procedures, as well as treatment alternatives in cases when extraction is necessary.
