Abstract

The palate-gingival grooves are an anatomical anomaly in maxillary incisors, which might result in local periodontal pocket formation, bone loss and sometimes pulpal necrosis. In the present case, there was a groove on the palatal side of a maxillary lateral incisor with vital pulp. The periodontal problem of the tooth was treated and the 6-month postoperative follow-up showed attachment gain and decreased pocket depth.
