It can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

Treatment options vary

Resective:
1. Furcationplasty,
2 Root amputation,
3 Root resection,
4 Hemisection
5 Tunnelling

Regenerative
1 PRF(Platelet rich fibrin)
2 GTR(Guided tissue regeneration)
3 Bone grafts[/vc_column_text][vu_heading style=”2″ heading=”GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION (GTR) FOR FURCATION INVOLVEMENT ” subheading=”” alignment=”left” custom_colors=”” class=””][vc_column_text]Patient presented with chief complaint of food impaction in left upper back tooth region (26 , 27).
