Determination to preserve the natural dentition among the patients has been increased. Therefore, it’s moral duty of the dentist to put efforts to preserve the natural tooth. Nowadays, hemisection has been widely used which refers to sectioning of multirooted tooth and removal of the that can be affected by the endodontic and periodontal means. It aims at retaining the natural tooth as much as possible. Regeneration by using Platelet Rich Fibrin is widely in use in dentistry due to numerous advantages. The present case report narrates the technique of hemisection of the mandibular first molar with placement of Platelet rich fibrin in the extraction socket. Long term success of the treatment modality depends entirely on proper diagnosis.
