Background: Hemisection is a surgical procedure, where one root of a multi-root tooth is
extracted because it can`t be repaired, and the other is used for further prosthetic reconstruction.
Nevertheless, treatment strategy to retain such teeth involves periodontal, endodontic and
prosthodontic assessment for appropriate selection of the indicated tooth in order to achieve longterm
survival. This abstract describes and illustrates 5 cases, where hemisection of mandibular molars was performed. One to 3 months after the intervention, the hemisected teeth were included
into fixed prosthetic reconstruction, either as solo crowns or as a part of a bridge. We noted the
basic periodontal and prosthetic indices in follow up period extended up to 36 months. Hemisected
teeth have proven to be a good solution for making a fixed prosthetic reconstruction, with longlasting
results and durability of prosthetic crafting. In conclusion, hemisection may be a suitable
alternative to extraction and implant therapy and should be considered as appropriate treatment
option for long term prognosis.
Keywords: Hemisection, molar, root resection, prosthetics.
