Abstract

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.
