Vital Pulp Therapy as a Conservative Approach for Management of Invasive Cervical Root Resorption: A Case Series
CE Hours: 1.0 CE hour
Clear treatment guidelines with predictable outcomes for invasive cervical root resorption (ICRR) do not exist. Recent studies show that an internal approach for the excavation and repair of resorptive lacunae using bioactive materials might be preferred over external surgical approaches in cases with extensive ICRR. The procedure appears to interrupt and stop the resorptive process and preserves the periodontium. The aim of this case series was to report on the clinical and radiographic outcomes in cases with ICRR treated with vital pulp therapy techniques using calcium-enriched mixture cement.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Explain the advantages of internal approach vs external approach in treatment of ICRR
- Discuss the benefits conservative excavation of resorptive lacuna
- Discuss why vital pulp therapy can be a treatment option when treating ICRR
