Perforations are pathologic or iatrogenic communications between the root canal system and the attachment apparatus. If a perforation occurs, the clinician is faced with the dilemma of repair, surgery or extraction. As the perforation creates a portal of exit in the root canal system it has to be sealed as quickly as possible, since periodontal involvement arising from the perforation can become irreversible with time. Now with the advent of many biocompatible materials, it can be treated successfully in a conservative manner and continue to function as it did before the perforation.
