Resorptive Dental Diseases: Diagnosis, Prognosis and Management


Friday, April 9, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm


Online via Zoom

Speaker: Dr. Brooke Blicher

Abstract: Resorptive dental diseases can seem like a confusing and heterogeneous group of entities because of their varying etiologies and presentations. Oversimplification into internal and external forms is misleading given the varying forms of external inflammatory, pressure and cervical resorption. Ultimately, the pathogenesis of resorption is shared across the different types, with the differences in presentations coming from both the causal agents and the particular tissues involved. In this lecture, the varying types of resorption will be reviewed, including internal, external inflammatory, replacement, pressure and external cervical resorptive diseases. Participants will leave equipped to recognize, diagnose and manage these complex diseases with confidence.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the common pathogenesis of resorptive diseases
  • Recognize the clinical and radiographic signs of resorption to differentiate among types of resorptive processes
  • Discuss evidence-based management strategies for resorptive dental diseases
