Treatment modalities of combined periodontal-endodontic lesions should eliminate pathogens from the infected area and prevent their re-colonization. The aim of this case report is to explore the effects of Nd: YAG laser on the healing of endoperiodontal lesions (EPLs). A patient with clinically diagnosed EPLs on teeth 33-34 and 35 was assigned to root canal treatment and obturation, removal of bacterial plaque by scaling and root planning and Nd: YAG laser applications. The assessment of healing was performed by measuring the clinical parameters and radiographic follow-up of lesions before and after the treatment. The clinical index values of the patient decreased significantly compared to baseline assessments and full recovery was observed in a relatively shorter time. Nd: YAG laser is a promising tool for successful treatment of EPL with immediate pain relief and reduced treatment time. Treating severe EPLs with Nd: YAG laser can lead to immediate pain relief and reducing treatment time.
