Palatal radicular grooves (PRGs) are developmental anomalies of maxillary incisors, when present can act as a site for plaque accumulation and periodontal infection. They are easily overlooked as etiologic factors, as these grooves are covered by periodontal tissues. The clinician has to be alert and check for variations in the anatomy of the tooth as a cause of pulp necrosis in the anterior segment of the tooth when other causes are ruled out. It is often associated with incorrect diagnosis, and subsequent treatment failure. This case report describes the diagnosis and management of two cases of Type II PRG of a maxillary lateral incisor with periapical and periodontal regeneration.
