Although the cause of root resorption is not very clear, it may be due to pathological, physically causes. The difficulties in diagnosing often result in improper treatment and loss of teeth. Correct diagnosis and proper treatment can prevent tooth loss. The purpose of this case report is to present treatment to a 46-year-old patient who is diagnosed with external inflammatory root resorption by the non-vital maxillary central incisor. After root canal treatment, intentional replantation of the tooth was applied so as to bring into open the resorption defect to let for debridement and sealing of using a biological material such as MTA (mineral trioxide aggregate) that allow reconstruction of the resorptive defect. The 12-month follow-up showed that the stopped of root resorption and the periapical area was healthy. The chemical, as well as biological properties of MTA, may be an appropriate endodontic biomaterial for the treatment of external root resorption.


KEY WORDS: Root resorption - Tooth replantation - Mineral trioxide aggregate
