Inhibition of Apical Root Resorption by Calcium Hydroxide During Orthodontic Treatment: A Case Report

Article Portuguese OPEN
Pacheco, Cinthia Mara da Fonseca; Pacheco, Daniela da Fonseca; Motta, Patrícia Gonçalves da;

Apical root resorption is a common outcome of orthodontic treatment. The present article reports a case of absence of apical root resorption in a left maxillary lateral incisor filled with calcium hydroxide paste throughout orthodontic movement. After orthodontic treatm... View more
