Abstract

Hemisection refers to sectioning of a mandibular molar into two halves followed by removal of the diseased root and its coronal portion. It can only be carried out in teeth where periodontal destruction has only affected one root and the treatment modality is beneficial to an overall treatment plan. This case reports a 26-year-old male patient who came to the Department Of Conservative Dentistry And Endodontics at Santosh Dental College Ghaziabad, with the chief complaint of pain in the Right lower back region since 2 weeks. Radiographic examination revealed themesial root with a broken instrument beyond the apex in the mesiolingual canal. It was decided to partially preserve the tooth by carrying out hemisection by removing the mesial root. The distal canal was obturated following restoration with post and core. After a 6-month routine follow up the periodontal apparatus and periapical tissues seemed to be normal with periapical healing i.r.t tooth no 47.
