Progressive inflammatory periodontal disease, if left untreated, it will ultimately result in attachment loss. This can affect the bifurcation or trifurcation of multirooted teeth. Dentists are challenged to save those teeth that earlier would have been extracted without a second thought to save it. Hence, resective therapy has been utilized in the treatment of furcation defects. Hemisection is a removal of compromised root and the associated crown portion. It is one of the treatment options for preserving remaining part of molar having sound periodontium. This case report presents a patient in whom distal half of the carious and periodontally compromised tooth was resected, and after healing, fixed dental prosthesis was given to restore proper form and function.
