Hemisection is a removal of compromised root and the associated crown portion. It is one of the treatment options for preserving remaining part of molar having sound periodontium. This procedure represents a form of conservative dentistry, aiming to retain as much of the original tooth structure as possible. The results are predictable and success rates are high. The present case report is a case of Hemisection in endodontic failure of mandibular first molar tooth with the pulp floor perforation with management with Hemisection.
