Atypical root resorption following root fractures in primary teeth
Nam, Ok Hyung / Kim, Mi Sun / Kim, Gyu-Tae / Choi, Sung Chul
Atypical root resorption (ARR) is the condition of a superficial and circumferential resorption process along the lateral and/or apical root surface of a primary maxillary incisor. This case series demonstrates longitudinal observations of six patients with atypical root resorption following root-fractured primary incisors. The characteristics of atypical root resorption were different from pathologic root resorption.
