POSTERIOR TEETH THAT SUFFER FROM ADVANCING BONE LOSS WITH INVOLVEMENT OF THE AREA BETWEEN THE ROOTS (FURCATION) DO NOT NECESSARILY NEED TO BE EXTRACTED. VERY OFTEN THE AMPUTATION OF ONE ROOT HELPS HYGIENE MEASURES, ELIMINATES THE INFECTION AND ALLOWS THE SUCCESFUL LONG TERM RETENTION OF THE TOOTH INVOLVED

Case 1

REMOVAL OF ONE ROOT LEAVING THE TOOTH SUPPORTED ON TWO ROOTS. THE MOLAR REQUIRED A ROOT TREATMENT FOLLOWING ROOT RESECTION. SHOWN IS THE 8 YEAR FOLLOWUP

Case 2

SEVERE BONE LOSS AROUND ONE ROOT OF THE MOLAR. A ROOT TREATMENT WAS REQUIRED ON THE RETAINED ROOT AND THE 10 YEAR FOLLOWUP SHOWS GOOD STABILITY

Case 3
