[Furcation involvement and its management].

These changes reflect reduction of the horizontal inter-radicular probe penetration. The criteria for selection were: Dent Clin North Am.

The presence of accessory canals in the furcation area may easily extend the endodontic infection in the furcation area and may result in bone loss in furcation. However, Lekovic et al [ 16 ] demonstrated that the use of the bone graft did not enhance the effect of the membrane with respect to the level of clinical attachment in furcation defects.


Tooth loss in treated patients with periodontal disease. Presently, there is no uniformity in the terms used to describe various treatments for teeth with furcation involvement. The mean relative clinical attachment values between the test and the control groups at the baseline were not statistically significant.

Connective tissue grafts and coronally positioned flaps can be employed to cover the furcation. Other authors have also reported an increased root caries risk in teeth were tunnel preparation has been done Loe H, Silness J. It was subsequently adapted over the defect extending 2 – 3 mm furvation to the crest of the existing bone, so as to provide a broad base during the placement.


On the other hand, Kalkwarf et al. This was less favorable than the conclusion from the systematic review reported by Murphy and Gunsolley,[ 17 ] which showed that GTR had more reduction in vertical probing depth compared to the Open Flap Debridement OFD controls.

After the defect was filled with the bone graft [ Figure 9 ], the membrane was removed from the sterile package and was compared with the surgical template and reduced to the template dimensions. Buccal-lingual involvement with the complete horizontal loss of supporting periodontal tissues with probe transpiercing both sides of the furcation.

The lingual root is the longest, the mesiobuccal root is not as long, but it is broader buccolingually, the distobuccal root is the smallest of all the three roots.

Deeper sites respond less favorably PowerPoint Presentation: The mean reduction in the vertical probing depth values in the test and control groups were 1.

Six months postsurgical horizontal measurements at the test site with the stent. The maxillary first molar is the largest tooth in the maxillary dental arch. For Grade I furcation involvement, following treatment modalities are usually employed.

It is important to determine the extent of furcation involvement to a make an appropriate diagnosis and developing a treatment plan. In one study, the prevalence of assessor canals in the furcation region of molars has been found to be There is a high percentage of molars with patent accessory canals that open in their furcation area All measurements were made using the UNC probe, with the help of a custom-made acrylic stent, which served as a fixed reference point.

[Furcation involvement and its management].

Go to Application Have a question? It has three roots, mesiobuccal, distobuccal and a palatal root.

It has been observed that molars with restorations have a higher prevalence of furcation involvement than the non-restored molars. Class II, Type 1: Furcations present very unusual challenges for instrumentation due to their anatomical features. Therefore, it was postulated that combining osseous grafting with guided tissue regeneration may enhance the response to membrane-only therapy, with bone restoration via the conductive effects of the graft, and supporting the membrane to a more optimal position in selective sites.

Open in a separate window. The studies included in this systematic review were analyzed for furcation closure rate, horizontal attachment level gain HALvertical attachment level gain VALhorizontal bone fill HBFand vertical bone fill VBF. The major disadvantage of the procedure is disease progression in the furcation hidden by the covering and therapeutic failure. Table 1 Changes in gingival and plaque scores.

The recall interval in patients with furcation involvement is comparatively shorter than the patients with no furcation involvement.

Sanz M, Givannoli JL. The coronal portion of the membrane was tightly secured to the cementoenamel junction CEJ of the tooth, with chromic catgut sutures [ Figure 10 ]. After being informed about the aim of the project, a signed consent was taken from the patient.
