Figure 2: (a and b) Preoperative pictures showing labio-radicular groove on central incisor and palatoradicular groove on lateral incisor. (c) Preoperative radiograph. (d) Sagittal cone beam computed tomography slice showing bone loss surrounding lateral incisor. (e-g) Sagittal and axial cone beam computed tomography slices at different levels showing the pulpward extent of the groove and the associated bone loss. (h) Immediate postobturation radiograph. (i) Full thickness mucoperiosteal flap raised to gain access to the palatal groove. (j) Shallow portion of the groove was saucerized. (k) Deep portion was restored with chemically cured glass ionomer cement. (l) Flap repositioned and covered by periodontal pack
