Introduction: Furcal perforations are the second most common cause of endodontic failure. The repair material must guarantee a correct furcation perforation seal, be biocompatible with the surrounding periodontal tissues and resist to displacement forces, when applied. Biodentine® (Septodont Inc., Saint Maur des Fossés, Ilhale-de-France, France) is a calcium silicate-based material that was approved for dental use in the USA by the FDA in 2009 and has a wide range of applications in the field of Endodontics. The main objective of this systematic review was to systematically analyze the evidence about the effectiveness of Biodentine in the repair of furcal perforations. Materials and methods: The search was guided on Pubmed/MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, Web of Science and Scopus, with the Mesh terms defined in the strategy, and the selection of the articles was managed by inclusion and exclusion criteria. Results: 25 articles were included in this systematic review, of which 76% corresponded to in vitro studies, in human teeth, and the remaining to in vivo studies, in animal teeth. Of the 19 in vitro studies, 11 referred to the sealing ability of Biodentine, and the remaining evaluated its push-out bond strength. All in vivo studies evaluated the response of periodontal tissues when applying Biodentine in the perforated area. Of the 25 studies, 24 proved the effectiveness of Biodentine with similar or superior results to other soma materials. Conclusion: Biodentine proved to be a good alternative for furcation perforation repair, demonstrating good sealing ability, good resistance to displacement forces and biocompatibility. The confirmation of these results by clinical studies is necessary.
