Palatogingival groove is a developmental anomaly which may cause periodontal destruction and if the groove is wide and deep endodontic involvement can also occur. In this case series the periodontal pockets of 7-10 mm pocket depths were present associated with Palatogingival Grooves. These cases were treated with scaling, root planning in the first visit and periodontal flap surgery along with bone grafting, odontoplasty and sealing the groove with Glass Ionomer cement Type II done in the next visit.
