Periradicular disease is mainly caused by varied microflora present in the root canal system. These microorganisms are removed to some extent with the help of various steps in root canal treatment. The infected teeth are treated nonsurgically rather than treating directly by surgical root canal treatment. For the successful surgical treatment, root end filling material is placed at the root end. This case report describes a case which is prior to nonsurgical method; however, because of complications these teeth are treated surgically. Biodentine being a biocompatible material can be used as a root end filling material, according to the manufacturer's instructions. The patient was recalled at a regular interval and it was found that periradicular tissue responded well to the restorative material. However, the long-term success rate for this material is yet to be evaluated, so for evaluation this case is followed up.
