Root Resorption: What Every Dental Practitioner Must Know
Is the incidence of root resorption increasing or has our ability to detect and measure root resorption improved? With the increasing popularity and availability of aesthetic orthodontic appliances, more and more dental practitioners are moving teeth in their practice without fully understanding the related risks. This course will review the causes and implications of both external and internal root resorption. We will discuss treatment protocols for addressing infective, invasive and trauma-induced tooth resorption.
