Home care by the patient plays a vital role in the overall prognosis of the treated tooth. They can be classified on the basis of their proximity to furcation entrance as. Surgical management Four to six weeks after scaling and root planing and just prior to the surgical procedure, each subject was re-examined and baseline data were recorded.

Furcation involvement and its treatment –

Connective tissue grafts and coronally positioned flaps can be employed to cover the furcation. The authors suggested unfavorable results of this therapy.

References available in the hard copy of the website Periobasics: There is a high percentage of molars with patent accessory canals that open in their furcation area The patient should be educated about maintenance of good oral hygiene and should be re-evaluated at a frequent interval.

These factors include local factors related to the involved tooth, patient related factors and clinician-related factors. This was carried out at the baseline and at six months postoperatively. The access to the furcation area is difficult both for the dentist and patient, and their treatment constitutes an enormous challenge.

Two occlusal stents, one of clear resin and the other of pink auto polymerizing resin were fabricated by the sprinkle-on method for both the test and control sites. The results of the study demonstrated Bicuspidization is one of the procedures for management of furcation involvement in mandibular molars. Along with the variables associated with the osseous defect itself, aspects associated with the tooth, and more specifically with furcation morphology,[ 24 ] obviously play a significant role in the outcome of GTR.



It does not enter the furcation, and therefore, no horizontal component is present. Fufcation sites respond less favorably. The distance of the mesial furcation entrance from CEJ is around 3 mm, while that of buccal and distal furcations from CEJ is 3.

Various terms have been used to describe treatment procedures for furcation involvement in the literature viz; furcationplasty, root amputation, hemisection, root resection, root separation and tunnel preparation.

This is because their………………………. Grade II — The enamel projection approaches the entrance to the furcation.

Along with this, the saved root cone should be placed in the occlusal plane mqnagement that after placement of fixed prosthesis, adequate inter-arch, and intra-arch occlusal relationship can be maintained. The curcation was soaked in normal saline solution to improve its adhesion properties as recommended by the manufacturer.

This was less favorable than the conclusion from the systematic review reported by Murphy and Gunsolley,[ 17 ] which showed that GTR had more reduction in vertical probing depth compared to the Open Flap Debridement OFD controls.

[Furcation involvement and its management].

It has three roots, mesiobuccal, distobuccal and a palatal root. This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3. The prognosis of the tooth is established only after the exact condition of furcation is known. Clinical evaluation of guided tissue regeneration in the treatment maangement maxillary class II molar furcation invasions. This may be explained by the biocompatibility of the collagen membrane and its hemostatic and chemotactic functions.


Root amputation Hemisection Trisection Tunneling procedure: The root cones start at the furcation point from where they involvemenh take various shapes diverging from the root trunk.

The authors stated that various treatment modalities for molars with furcation involvement are selected based on the depth of furcation involvement.

The resorbable collagen membrane had excellent handling characteristics and biological acceptance. Membrane exposure was not observed in any of the cases in the study. Furcationplasty can be applied to the buccal and lingual furcation areas. Presentation Description This is a presentation of furcaction involvement chapter from Caranza Glickman 22 proposed classification for furcation involvement were four grades of furcation involvement were described, Grade I: The root morphology of the surviving root should allow for surgical access and proper periodontal maintenance of the final restoration 3, The coronal portion of the membrane was tightly secured invvolvement the cementoenamel junction CEJ of the tooth, with chromic catgut sutures [ Figure 10 ].

It may result in rapid formation of isolated furcation lesion. While planning for root separation it must be made sure that managemfnt root cones are not fused. Prior to the surgical procedure, thorough scaling and root planing were performed. The prognosis of such teeth is poor and frequently, tooth loss results. Hemisection is defined as the removal of half of a tooth performed by sectioning the tooth and removing one root.

Treatment of grade II furcation involvement Grade II or Cul-de-sac like furcation defect can be treated by both regenerative and resective procedures.
