Internal and External Resorption 2011

Objectives and Goals

  • Describe the various etiologies implicated in the onset of resorptive defects.
  • Identify cell types and tissues involved in the resorptive process.
  • Name and describe the various types of resorption.
  • Clinically differentiate the types of resorption.
  • Describe various treatment modalities for the different types of resorption.
