Subject: [roots] resorption

Patient presented with necrotic molar that had a lucency just below the crown margins.  Probing on the buccal surface
below the crown revealed a rough surface...not like caries.  After access, there were smooth and rounded areas that were
buccal to the canal orifices - Fred

Hi Fred, This looks like a classic case of invasive cervical resorption (or subepithelial inflammatory root resorption). This example depicts the condition in a fairly advanced form--the pulp seems to be completely necrotic. How did you manage this case? Many of these cases are usually extracted...ultimately - Peter I am doing the endo in two visits and will seal the entire chamber with resin. A flap will then be reflected to 'debride and restore' any visible - Fred
