Invasive cervical resorption clinically references an uncommon destructive and aggressive form of external tooth resorption. Diagnostically, external cervical invasive resorption (ECIR) lesions may appear as crestal or subgingival decay, or in erupting teeth as invasive coronal resorption, or even apically as invasive radicular resorption.
Numerous descriptors exist for this pathologic process: surface resorption, external inflammatory resorption, external replacement resorption, external cervical resorption, and transient apical breakdown. All are aggressive and problematic in regard to their clinical management. The more complex they become in regard to their location related to the epithelial attachment, the more difficult it becomes to reconstitute the resorptive defect.
Despite the odontoclastic nature of this pathosis, in many instances, there is no need to do root-canal therapy. This course is designed to acquaint the practitioner with the histopathology, diagnosis and treatment of ECIR lesions and enable him or her to differentially diagnose them from other similar lesions that require alternative treatment regimens.
