2017 Annual Session Conference

AS17B45B - Impacted Teeth: Resorb or Be Resorbed

Apr 24, 2017 1:45pm ‐ Apr 24, 2017 2:45pm


The principal aim of the presentation is to bring Invasive Cervical Root Resorption and Pre-eruptive Intracoronal Resorption to the attention of orthodontists who, for the most part, are unaware of their existence and hence of their importance. Orthodontics and surgery have been cited as etiologic factors for ICRR. Each condition has a direct bearing on the ability to achieve orthodontic movement, on the success of treatment and on the prognosis of these teeth.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define six different manifestions of resorption related to impacted teeth.
  • Describe Invasive Cervical Root Resorption (ICRR) and Pre-eruptive Intra-coronal Resorption (PEIR).
  • Propose multidisciplinary treatment in the presence of ICRR and PEIR.
