Internal and External Resorption – Case Presentations
Dr. Paul Belzycki
General Dentist, Toronto
Root resorption, both internal and external, is an uncommon clinical finding. Management of these lesions requires periodontal surgery, endodontics and restorative dentistry. Presumably, we are aware that one must not violate the Biologic Width of Attached Gingiva with restorative materials. However, these lesions are often located in the complex of tissues, comprising the Biologic Width, forcing us to manage this delicate soft tissue barrier against the ingress of micro-organisms that promote periodontal breakdown. This presentation reviews several cases in the hopes of providing guidance to achieve predictably successful outcomes.
