Background: To study prevalence of endo-perio lesions in non-molar and molar teeth. Materials & methods: A total of 50 teeth were enrolled as in 48 subjects. The presence/absence of periapical lesion, bone loss in the furcation region, and proximal area were evaluated. The results were analysed using SPSS software. The p- value less than 0.05 was considered significant. Results: It was found that 60% of the teeth were diagnosed with primary endodontic lesion, and that periodontal lesions were present in as secondary (12%), primary (8%), or combined (14%).
