Hemisection: Two case reports
Keywords:Hemisection, root amputation, endodontic–periodontal lesion
Aim: This report discusses root and endodontic treatment as well as dental endodontic treatment of remaining roots using hemisection. An array of prosthetic approaches is described.Close Panel
Methodology: These two case reports describe multidisciplinary prosthetic restoration of teeth using a hemisection procedure.
Results: It was possible to obtain successful results in problematic cases where the root failed to respond to endodontic treatment using a multidisciplinary approach combining endodontic treatment with restorative or prosthetic restorations of the intact root.
Conclusions: Hemisection is a suitable alternative approach to extraction for the effective and conservative treatment of affected teeth using periodontal and endodontic treatment.
