In Endodontic, one of the most crucial problem that can result in the loss of teeth is periapical lesion. In the development of periapical lesion in periapical tissues, not only the presence of infected pulp but also the toxins, metabolic products, chemical agents, mechanical irritations, foreign substances, trauma and host defense of existing microorganisms also play a role. Radiographic findings, clinical oral examination and differential diagnosis are used in the diagnosis of periapical lesion. Even though endodontic treatment option combined with apical surgery could be an option for treatments of large periapical lesions, conventional root canal treatment should be the first choice that combined with long-term follow-up after treatment. The aim of this case report is to present a complete clinical and radiological healing of teeth relation with a large cyst-like periradicular lesion treated only with root canal treatment and without the need for a surgical treatment.

Keywords: Healing, large periapical lesion, non-surgical endodontic treatment.
