Tooth Resorption

Resorption is a pathologic process where your tooth begins to dissolve away. There are many different types of resorption. In most cases, the more quickly the resorption is addressed, the higher the likelihood of a successful outcome for your tooth. If you have been told one of your teeth is undergoing resorption, please contact us for an evaluation.


There are many types of resorption that can affect a tooth and each is managed in a different way. Some types of resorption result from a traumatic injury or from persistent irritation. Other types of resorption may be related to an infection of the root canal.


If, during your evaluation appointment, our diagnosis indicates resorption, we’ll explain the process and give you realistic treatment options to treat or manage the condition. In most cases, a 3D CBCT scan will be captured to aid with determining the extent of the resorption as well as for helping to determine the long-term prognosis of your tooth. Whatever the case is, you can rest assured that our compassionate staff will guide you every step of the way.
