Hopeless to Hopeful: Hemisection of a Periodontally Involved Molar - A Case Report

Parkavi Arumugam | Mala Dixit Baburaj [3]

Abstract: The term hemisection refers to the sectioning of a molar tooth, with the removal of an unrestorable root and part of the crown. Periodontally involved teeth with severe bone loss involving only part of the tooth, may well be retained by hemisection. This article describes and illustrates one such case of periodontally involved mandibular molar treated by a simple procedure of hemisection and socket preservation using bone graft and platelet rich fibrin and its subsequent restoration.

Keywords: Hemisection, mandibular molar, root resection, platelet rich fibrin
