Introduction: Pulp inflammation can extend to the periodontium causing damage to the periodontal tissue. The relationship between pulp and periodontium occurs due to their interconnected vascularization and their close proximity to each other. Diagnosing endo-perio lesions can be challenging because pulp tissue and periodontium previously have been studied separately, and one primary disease had characteristics similar to the other. Case report: This case reported two cases of endo-perio lesions that were performed in a conventional root canal treatment via sequential endodontic and periodontal treatments. Follow-up radiographs demonstrated the complete healing of the hard and soft tissue lesions. Conclusion: Endodontic treatment performed with proper cleaning and shaping and specific medication, followed by periodontal treatment could be successful in treating endo-perio lesions.
