The case report sheds light upon a non-surgical repair of a furcation defect. A 57-year old female reported for examination of tooth no. 46. The presenting complains included mild to moderate pain with small localized swelling and discharge from lingual aspect of tooth. Clinical examination revealed a discharging sinus with moderate inflammation at gingival margin on lingual aspect, with negative percussion. A diagnosis of chronic peri-radicular abscess of the tooth was made and the defect was repaired by using Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA). The clinical sign and symptoms resolved after treatment within a week period.
