Westerville Traumatic Dental Injuries
Root resorption can be external or internal. Internal root resorption occurs on the inside of the tooth. The repair procedure is applied within the space of the root canal, and when caught early, can help to stop the resorption process. External root resorption is typically more aggressive and progresses from the outside of the tooth toward the pulp. External resorption repair can be performed internally, externally, or both depending on the location and extent of the resorption. Both types of resorption require prompt endodontic care to preserve the tooth and halt/slow down the progression of resorption.
Dr. Mason Bahador will determine the severity of the root resorption using a CT scan and create a care plan to address the state of your tooth. If the resorption is manageable, performing root resorption repair can save the tooth. Extraction and dental implant placement are sometimes better options for teeth with severe resorption.
