Abstract

Attachment loss in furcal areas is a challenge for the clinician. Root resection and root amputation techniques have been used to overcome the instrumentation problems that these areas pose. Recent reports indicate that this approach is effective and reliable but extremely technique-sensitive and expensive for endodontic and prosthetic involvement. A more conservative approach, such as scaling and root planing, is suggested only for shallow class II furcation. Guided tissue regeneration in deep class II and class III furcation seems to be unpredictable and the efficacy of this therapy in such areas is still questionable.
