EXTERNAL ROOT RESORPTION DUE TO IMPACTED THIRD MOLARS
Case report, 64 - 71Tag this article
The external resorption of permanent teeth is a very complex phenomenon where odontoclasts resorb the outer surface of the tooth. In these cases, careful clinical and radiographic examination is indicated to identify the location and extent of the defect. In the present paper, four patients exhibiting multiple impacted molars causing advanced root resorption to adjacent teeth are presented.
