Many developmental or pathological anomalies can occur within the periodontium which may affect the attachment levels on the tooth structure. These anomalies may lead to or predispose the tooth to periodontitis or may affect the outcome of treatment provided to them. A case is reported of a 28-year-old male with attachment loss, recession and furcation involvement in a nonvital tooth, associated with a root stump concrescence, mimicking a cemental growth.
