Abstract

Recent advances in today’s dentistry and the increased awareness among the patients to maintain their dentition have led to conservative treatment approaches, which once would have been opted for removal. In order to carry out the present day mandate, periodontally diseased or carious teeth with involvement of furcation area may be well retained by separation of their roots. This clinical report describes a case of bicuspidization of mandibular first permanent molar with subsequent double crowns restoration, which yielded a satisfactory result in an 11-year-old young female patient.
