Successful management of ICR relies on the location, size and accessibility of the lesion as well as the structural integrity of the tooth and periodontium after treatment is completed. The present case demonstrates that ICR can be arrested by the approach recommended by Heithersay. Here, a diode laser was used as an adjunct to aid in disinfecting the resorptive defect as well as the flap. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • Invasive cervical resorption is a poorly understood and often misdiagnosed lesion.
  • Careful clinical, radiographic and periodontal examinations hold the key to successful management.
  • Teamwork by restorative dentists and periodontists is important for salvaging such damaged teeth.
