A 17-year-old male patient presented for the evaluation of his nonhealing interdental deep pocket in relation to the mandibular second premolar and mandibular first molar. He denied any history of pain. Excessive food lodgment, salty taste, and smell related to the specific region were his chief complaints. The periapical radiograph exhibited well-defined interradicular unilocular radiolucency with sclerotic margins between the vital mandibular second premolar and mandibular first molar. The lesion was completely enucleated with deep curettage and root planning. Histopathologic reports showed a heavy inflammatory infiltrate. Successive radiographs showed excellent bone healing. Teeth were endodontically treated for severe sensitivity to cold. Step-by-step radiographic follow-up showed osseous repair with no evidence of disease till 25 months.
