Restorative planning for hemisection surgery: a technique report
Tabiat-Pour, Sara / Roberts, Anthony / Harrison, Rob / Chapple, Iain
Hemisection surgery involves the premeditated amputation of one or more roots and its overlying coronal structure to facilitate partial tooth retention. This can be carried out in cases where a multirooted tooth may have its furcation area, or one or more of its roots severely affected by periodontal disease, caries or a periodontal-endodontic lesion. With appropriate case selection and pre-operative planning it is possible to attain good aesthetics, a friendly environment for the periodontium and a good long-term prognosis. This report outlines a technique whereby a hemisected tooth may be restored without compromising its positional relationship to its abutments and by minimising occlusal loading.
