Hemisection denotes removal or separation of root with its accompanying crown portion of mandibular molars. This procedure represents a form of conservative dentistry, aiming to retain as much of the original tooth structure as possible. The results are predictable and success rates are high. Here is a case report of a 46 year old male with hemisection procedure performed in the tooth #46 with grade III furcation involvement followed by fixed partial denture.

Keywords: Mandibular molars, Hemisection, Furcation defects, Root resection
