The first 7 entries in Table 2 (see back cover) constitute a set of clinical criteria (PD, BOP, percent bone loss, tooth mobility, degree of furcation
involvement, and CAL) that will facilitate differentiation of health from gingivitis and between the various levels of severity of chronic periodontitis.
Lagou utilized a glass ionomer restorative material to fill furcation
defects and found the biomaterial to be biocompatible .
Incidence of cervical enamel projections and its relationship to furcation

perforations treated with tricalcium phosphate,hydroxylapatite,amalgam and life.
Few studies in the current literature focus on the differences between the clinical attachment in furcation
sites versus the non-furcation
15); presence of two paired, two- or three-wall intra-bony defects with a probing depth (PD) of [greater than or equal to]6 mm and an intra-bony component of [greater than or equal to]3 mm, as detected on radiographs; no intra-bony defects extending into the furcation
area; tooth mobility [less than or equal to]1; tooth and adjoining teeth testing vital and without symptoms or signs of endodontic involvement; and tooth and adjoining teeth free of caries or inadequate restorations.
and pockets between the teeth where bacteria multiply can be easily seen on the x-ray of a few of Cooper's teeth.
Moreover, the database does not contain information regarding factors such as, the extent of caries or furcation
involvement, status of periodontal breakdown, remaining alveolar bone loss, root canal status, restorative and occlusal conditions, and even tobacco use, which will not be identified in the administrative database if the subject has not been undergoing active management, all of which might relate to a higher risk of root-resected molar failure.
Van Dyke, Efcacy of combined regenerative treatments in human mandibular class II furcation
Staining with HE indicated that root resorption mainly occurred at the root furcation
and in the vicinity of the stress-side apex.
Pulpotomy was considered a failure clinically and/or radiographically if one or more of the following signs were present: pain; swelling; mobility; percussion pain; internal root resorption; and furcation
and/or periapical bone destruction.
