the root canal systems to the supporting tissues of teeth. Often,
it is an accidental result of misaligned use of rotary burs
during access preparation and location of root canal orifices.
Other possible etiologic factors for perforation can be strip
perforations during cleaning and shaping procedures, root
resorption, defect created during post space preparation,
perforation of floor of pulp chamber due to extension of
carious lesion. The present case report throws light on the
healing of rarefaction of the furcation area caused due to
accidental perforation due to access cavity preparation.
Endodontic treatment with placement of MTA as perforation
repair material. Many materials have been reported as
furcation repair materials but in the present case report MTA
is used as a repair material which achieved excellent results.
Mineral trioxide aggregate is a suitable material for the
treatment of root perforations, with the goal of regenerating
