Clinical challenges posed by compromised teeth often complicate treatment plans and compromise long-term outcomes. Caries in the area of the furcation or periodsontal attachment loss in upper molar teeth are examples of these issues. In such cases, treatment options include root resection to maintain a tooth or extraction and prosthetic replacement to remove the tooth. The resection of a problematic root involves removing the affected roots and keeping the relatively intact portions. An upper molar root resection treatment done using a combined periodontal approach and endodontic management resulted in a successful outcome described in this case report.
