Description: The ambiguous nature of Invasive Cervical Resorption (ICR) or perhaps a more descriptive term "Supraosseous External Resorption" (SER) has led to many misconceptions and occasionally disagreements. For instance, there is no consensus on the terminology of this lesion and there are different philosophies on the etiology, biology, and treatment modalities, and outcome.

  • Discuss etiology and progression rate of invasive cervical resorption.
  • Discuss the role of CBCT in diagnosis and management of ICR.
  • Discuss multidisciplinary management of ICR and its prognosis.
