Hemisection as a neoconservative approach for the treatment of a grossly carious Permanent Mandibular first molar

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Masarat Mir and Dr. Rishi Manan
ABSTRACT:The term “hemi section” or “root amputation” is the deduction of the knotty root together with the crown after completely unravelling the tooth from the mesial to the distal in the upper molars and premolars and from the buccal to the lingual in the lower molars. When caries, resorption, iatrogenic hitches, or periodontal mutilation is circumscribed to one root and the other root is quiet typically in good shape, hemisection is an adequate salutary preference. Hemisection of the tormented tooth encouragements in the safeguarding of the alveolar bone that backgrounds and supports fixed dentures. Consequently, hemisection or management possibilities should be reserved in mind when a molar tooth needs to be taken because only one root has been impaired. This case pronounces hemisection as a efficacious treatment scheme to convalesce mandibular molars followed by prosthetic rehabilitation generated a pleasing outcome.
