Conservation of mandibular molar teeth exhibiting furcation involvement and perforation of the pulp floor have always been a challenge. Section of the affected tooth at the furcation zone, and preservation of the mesial and distal roots individually with its crown portion, helps to preserve the tooth structure, alveolar bone and avoids sacrificing a strategic tooth. Therapeutic planning is multidisciplinary. It contains surgical, endodontic and prosthetic phase. Long-term success depends on thorough diagnosis and careful selection of cases.
