Diagnosis

Patient presented with no symptoms. Radiographs and CBCT scan show invasive cervical external resorption.

 

Challenge

The location of the resorptive defect (on the palatal aspect of the root) would make a surgical repair very difficult.

 

Treatment

Prophylactic endo completed along with orthograde Geristore root repair. No surgical intervention was needed. Repair was made through the endo access on the palatal side of tooth.

Avoid handling paperwork, expedite care and share patient information all
in one place.
