Treatment of periodontitis which involves the furcation area of molar teeth has always been a challenge. Sixty extracted human molar teeth were used for an anatomic study to clarify the possible morphologic factors which may affect the diagnosis, prognosis, and clinical management of periodontally involved teeth. Teeth were embedded in methylmethacrylate and cut in 70 microm cross sections from the cementoenamel junction to the apex. Cervical enamel projection, root and root trunk lengths, root… CONTINUE READING
