Molars are the most frequently extracted teeth in patients with untreated periodontal disease. Although multirooted teeth with damaged furcations have been successfully treated and functionally preserved for many years by means of periodontal therapy, therapeutical failures have been more frequently observed than in singleroated teeth. As there is no unanimous opinion concerning the frequency of lesions in the furcation region, the aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of these lesions in relation to the types of teeth and the degree of damage in particular groups of teeth, and
to compare the clinical and roentgenographic findings obtained. Ninety-one periodontal patents, mean age 41.7 years, were examined for this purpose. In total, 546 molars, 294 in the upper jaw and 252 in lower jaw, were examined. A lesion to the furcation was clinically recorded in 48.9% of molars in both jaws, whereas by means of orthopantomography the same could be visualized in 16.1% of cases only. Most commonly, a lesion was seen to have affected the first upper and second upper molars.
