Periapical status of one hundred and twenty six posterior teeth treated endodontically approximately one year back were evaluated clinically and radiologically in relation to the technical quality of root filling and the coronal restoration. Clinically all but 4 teeth were symptom free, however, radiologically, 55.6% of the teeth had periradicular inflammation. Absence of periradicular inflammation (API) was evident in 100% cases where both root filling and coronal restoration were good. API was 53.8% where root filling was good and the coronal restoration was poor. Statistically, the correlation of good endodontic filling and good coronal restoration with absence of periradicular inflammation was highly significant. The results of this study indicate that the coronal restoration is of critical importance and only good endodontic filling alone is not sufficient for better results
