Keywords:Root Resorption, Chronic pulpal infections, Inflammatory, Hyperplastic invasive tooth resorption, Lindskog Classification of Root Resorption
Abstract: Internal resorption is an asymptomatic condition in teeth seen with past history of injury. In the crown it has a clinical observation of pink mark. It is diagnosed by chance on an x-ray examination. Primal detection and resorption treatment improves prognosis of the condition. Resorption can be broadly classified into normal physiological or pathological process associated with extensive damage to hard structures of tooth such as dentin, cementum and bone. Proper diagnosis of resorption and differentiation of resorption from internal and external resorption by radiographic presentation and the correct diagnosis and treatment planning improves the prognosis of the condition. Untreated cases will cause loss or early exfoliation of the afflicted tooth .
