Diagnosis and Treatment of Internal Resorption

By Patrick J. Battista, DDS

Tooth resorption is defined as a physiologic or pathologic process that results in the loss of dental tissue, such as dentin and cementum.1 Tooth resorption is classified as either internal or external, which can be further divided into specific types. Internal resorption originates from within the pulp, while external resorption begins in the periodontal ligament. Although external resorption is more common, it is often misdiagnosed as internal resorption.
