What is Internal Resorption? 

When dental trauma happens, a rare condition known as internal resorption can occur. This resorption begins inside the tooth and eventually destroys its entire structure. 

Your teeth get their strength and health from cells known as odontoblasts that work to create dentin. Often after dental trauma, these cells can begin to malfunction and cause erosion in the tooth – from inside the tooth. With diagnostic testing, this condition can be discovered and treated using a specifically targeted procedure designed to clean out the root canal system. Then, calcium hydroxide is used to get rid of these disorganized cells. The tooth is sealed up and strength is restored. 

If the internal resorption goes unnoticed and untreated, it can cause teeth to weaken and easily break.

Symptoms of Internal Resorption

While many people don’t experience any symptoms with internal resorption, there are a few things you may look out for: 

  • A brittle tooth that chips easy

  • A cavity-type hole in the tooth

  • Discoloration in the tooth – such as a dark or reddish/pink area

Keep in mind that the erosion takes place inside the tooth which makes it hard to detect without diagnostic imaging.

Frequently Asked Questions About Internal Resorption

Is internal resorption painful?
Generally, no. Most people are asymptomatic and don’t even realize they have the condition unless it is caught with a diagnostic imaging tool.
How quickly can resorption occur?
It varies from person to person, but it can happen quite rapidly. If left untreated the tooth can be left very vulnerable within a few months.
Is internal resorption common?
Internal resorption is quite rare because it stems mostly from dental trauma (including physical trauma).
