The progressing inflammatory periodontal disease, if left untreated, results in attachment loss. This can also affect the bifurcation or trifurcation of a multirooted teeth. Thus, the treatment and long-term retention of mandibular molar teeth exhibiting furcation involvement has always been a key challenge, especially when there is furcation involvement progressed to a class II furcation. Hemisection denotes the removal of compromised root and its associated crown portion with the loss of periodontal attachment and to maintain the original tooth structure to attain the fixed prosthesis. This case report demonstrates the successful management of hemisection of 36 with occlusal rehabilitation and it was aimed to follow a conservative treatment approach to retain as much as original tooth structure possible against the conventional option of extracting the natural tooth.
