Periapical lesions develop as a sequalae to pulp disease. They often associated without any acute pain or discomfort and commonly discovered on routine radiographic examination. Incidence of cyst within periapical lesion varies between 6 and 55% and occurrence of periapical granulomas ranges between 9.3 and 87.1%. the occurrence of abscesses noted between 28.7 and 70.07%. it is recommended that all inflammatory periapical lesions should be treated initially with conservative nonsurgical approach. This article presents a case report where an extensive inflammatory periapical tissue is treated by nonsurgical conservative therapy of mandibular first molar. Even though the presence of large periapical changes in the bone, it was chosen not to perform a surgical procedure and to treat with conservative root canal treatment to decompress the lesion through root canal. The 12 months observation period showed satisfactory healing of periapical lesion.
