The term fenestration refers to a circumscribed defect that creates a "window" through the bone over the prominent root. This lesion will be seen when the alveolar bone is exposed by a flap surgery, its associated with localized periodontal destruction. This case reports a 62year-oldmale patient who presented with persistent tooth pain at the lower right 2ed incisor, despite repeated root canal treatments by a general practitioner. When the patient visited our clinic, a CT examination was performed and apical fenestration was diagnosed. The tooth was not restorable due to a fracture in the apical third from a previous root canal therapy. Suggested treatment plan was to extract the tooth, perform bone grafting and a future implant.
