Treating Tooth Resorption


Tooth resorption is a dental condition in which the interior or exterior layers of a tooth begin to decay — and the resulting damaged tissue is then absorbed by the body.

Because of the deterioration, the tooth weakens and becomes more vulnerable to cavities or accidental injury. The condition can be caused by an injury or decay and must be treated by a dentist.

How the condition is treated will depend on the cause but a number of possibilities exist:

  • Root Canal Treatment – Badly decayed interiors of teeth will usually require some form of root canal treatment to remove the decayed matter and restore the teeth to good health and a stronger structure.
  • Gum Surgery – For less serious cases it may be possible for the dentist to use gum surgery in order to remove unhealthy tissue.
  • Dental Crowns – Crowns will not repair any damage done but can restore the teeth to stability and prevent further damage.

In the most severe cases, and only considered as a last resort, the dentist may have to extract damaged teeth. But if this is necessary, your dentist can guide you through the various methods of tooth replacement available.
