Pink Tooth –Diagnosis & Management- A Case Report
Keywords:Inflammatory internal resorption, Diagnosis, Management
Internal root resorption is described as a resorptive defect of the internal aspect of the root with formation of granulation tissue or deposition of metaplastic tissue as a result of chronic inflammation and bacterial invasion of the pulp tissue. It is generally discovered in teeth with previous history of trauma and the affected tooth is usually asymptomatic. Proper history, good diagnosis and early treatment improve the overall prognosis of such teeth. The present report demonstrates a progressive, non-perforating, inflammatory internal resorption involving the middle third of permanent maxillary left central incisor which was treated by non-surgical orthograde means and oburated with thermoplastized gutta percha technique.
