Description

Resorptive processes in the teeth can be classified into 11 different types. Some are pathological while others are normal physiological processes. In order to diagnose and manage root resorption, it is essential to understand the processes involved and distinguish between different types of resorption. The differential diagnosis is largely based on the radiographic appearance of the resorptive defect, with a little bit of help from symptoms and clinical findings. Traditional two-dimensional radiography is usually sufficient for diagnosis but occasionally three-dimensional imaging may help to determine management and prognosis. Guidelines for differential diagnosis of the various types of resorption are provided along with numerous examples to demonstrate the differences.

  • List the 11 types of tooth resorption
  • Describe the specific clinical features of each type of resorption
