A 25 year old male patient reported to department with the chief complaint of pain in lower left back region of jaw since 2-3 months based on patients history, clinical and different angulated radiographic examination, the case was diagnosed as external root resorption by chronic mechanical injuries.
After completion of endodontic (RCT) treatment, different approaches exists in the treatment of external root resorption.
Previously amalgam, GIC, Super EBA, IRM was used to repair the resorption but these materials are associated with formation of periodontal defects.
New bioactive root end filling material (MTA) has excellent biological and regenerative properties and it has no toxic effects on cells so that here we chose root canal therapy combined with surgical correction/placement of MTA at defective site.
The case presented here was successful both clinically and radiographically as there were no further complaints from patient in follow up and no periodontal defects were observed at surgical site.
