Introduction: Treatment of advanced furcation invasion has always been questionable. The present case report used a GIC as an occlusive barrier in the treatment of maxillary Class III furcation defects. This procedure helps in saving a tooth which otherwise would have been deemed for extraction. Method: In this case report, glass ionomer cement is used as an occlusive barrier in the treatment of maxillary Class III furcation defects. One year follow-up of clinical and radiographic photo series results showed a reduction of gingival inflammation, tooth mobility and gain in attachment level with the use of glass ionomer. Conclusion: As GIC has many advantages over other restorative materials like low cost, antibacterial property, ease in use, biocompatibility with periodontal tissues, it is a good option in management of class III furcation cases.
