A Major Complication Of Endodontic And Restorative Treatments Is Accidental Perforation Of The Pulp Chamber Floor. A Perforation In The Furcation Area Is A Potential Risk Factor For Extension Of Pulpal Inflammation Into The Periodontium And Formation Of Advanced Furcation Defect With Severe Loss Of Clinical Attachment And Interradicular Bone. Therefore, The Management Of Advanced Furcation Defects Remains A Challenging And Enigmatic Task For The Clinician. The Main Objective Of This Study Was To Evaluate Perforation Repair In Furcal Involving Mandibular Molars In Patients Under 50 Years Of Age. The Current Study Is An Institutional Based Retrospective Study Performed Over Reviewing 86,000 Case Records. A Total Of 24 Subjects Who Underwent Furcal Perforation Repair In Relation To Mandibular Molars Under 50 Years Of Age Were Chosen For The Study Out Of 6475 Subjects Who Had Undergone Root Canal Treatment In Various Teeth. Patients With Other Than Perforation Repairs And Medically Compromised Were Excluded. Once The Data Was Obtained, Analysis Was Done By Descriptive And Inferential Statistics Using Spss By Ibm Version 20. From This Current Study, It Was Found That, Out Of 24 Patients, 13 Males(54.2%) And 11 Females(45.8%) Have Undergone Perforation Repair Treatment. Highest Incidence Of Perforation Repair Was Seen In Tooth Number 36 (41.67%). Patients In The Age Group Of 41-50 Years Had The Highest Incidence Of Perforation Repair In Relation To Mandibular Molars. Adequate Knowledge, Experience And Clinical Skill Enables Good Management Of Furcal Perforations.
