Because of anatomical conditioners and their relative inaccessibility for plaque control by patients, teeth with furcal affectation represents a challenge for clinicians. With the purpose of dealing with these difficult handling areas, an ample rank of treatment modalities have been studied between which can be emphasized: surgical and nonsurgical mechanical debridement, furcal plastia, tunelization, tooth hemi-section, radicular resection and regenerative treatments without obtaining conclusive results. Objectives: to review the available evidence on the nature of achievable periodontal regeneration in molars with furcal affectation and to evaluate the effect of regeneration through periodontal clinical parameters. Conclusion: periodontal regeneration in furcal lesions by means of RTG and/or EMD are effective and predictable technique for the clinical and prognostic improvement of molars with furcación lesions.
