Resorption of the root can be either internal or external and may manifest in the form of perforations on the middle third of the root surface. These resorptions may have undesirable sequelae such a gingival inflammation, periodontal destruction and bone resorption. Numerous materials have been tested to treat such lesions in the past. The present case makes use of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and a periodontal flap for the management of external root resorption. With the success of treatment and desirable outcomes at follow-up appointments, MTA proved to be an effective and viable material of choice.

Abstract


Resorption of the root can be either internal or external and may manifest in the form of perforations on the middle third of the root surface. These resorptions may have undesirable sequelae such a gingival inflammation, periodontal destruction and bone resorption. Numerous materials have been tested to treat such lesions in the past. The present case makes use of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and a periodontal flap for the management of external root resorption. With the success of treatment and desirable outcomes at follow-up appointments, MTA proved to be an effective and viable material of choice.
