Mandibular molars are the first teeth to erupt in the oral cavity having high caries susceptibility index, which actually necessitates cautious oral hygiene measures. Any deprivation in the upkeep may prompt significant issue like furcation involvement.Advances in dentistry, and the expanded wants of patients to keep up their dentition, have led to treatment of teeth that once would have been removed. Bicuspidization is a surgical procedure performed on the mandibular molars for the partition of the mesial and distal roots with their individual crown divides; this detachment takes out the existence of a furcation and encourages viable oral hygiene practice. A 30-year-old female patient reported with the chief complaint of pain and food lodgement in right mandibular first molar. On examination, the tooth was sensitive to percussion and revealed Grade I mobility. On radiographic examination, bone loss was evident in the intra- radicular area. Root canal treatment was done followed by bicuspidization of tooth.
