Management of internal root resorption in primary mandibular right first molar: A case report with four-year follow-up
The etiology and pathogenesis of internal inflammatory root resorption are partly understood and thus an attempt is made at the same.
The importance of chemical debridement was emphasized.
An alternative to conventional methods of management of inflammatory internal root resorption was shown and suggested.
Internal inflammatory root resorption in primary teeth is a well-known entity with unknown prevalence. The diagnosis and conservative treatment of such a lesion has perplexed practitioners for decades. The management of a non-perforating internal root resorption is long been debated by general dentists and paediatric dentists alike. This case presentation describes the case of a 4-year old boy with non-perforating internal root resorption in a primary molar treated successfully with endodontic procedure and monitored routinely for four years. The objective here was to suggest a minimally-invasive treatment alternative to conventional treatment practices.
