Early diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory radicular lesions associated with deciduous teeth is imperative as it can lead to bony expansion and may adversely affect underlying permanent successor. Histopathologically, these lesions may be radicular granulomas, radicular granulomas with epithelium or a radicular cyst if an epithelial lined lumen is present. They may be associated with severely decayed teeth or teeth which had undergone pulp therapy. We present three case reports of such lesions which were treated under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
