Abstract

Palato-radicular grooves (PRGs) are developmental anomalies of the maxillary incisors teeth. The presence of palate-radicular groove, more frequently observed at the level of the maxillary lateral incisor, and once there is associated lack of epithelial closure which makes it an important niche for microbe and may compromise both the periodontium and the radicular pulp leading to periodontic-endodontic lesion. The accurate diagnosis of groove as an initiator of pathology, along with its depth and relation to pulp cavity is the pre-requisite for successful management. This report describes an unusual case of PRG on maxillary lateral incisor and an approach towards the decision making process and successful management.
