ABSTRACT: Invasive cervical resorption (ICR) is a type of external resorption that can involve the coronal, middle, and apical parts of the root in its advanced stages. The diagnosis and treatment of ICR depend on the extent of the resorption into the dentin. The treatment of advanced ICR is challenging, and these teeth have poor prognoses. This article describes 4 cases of class 4 ICR diagnosed by using cone-beam computed tomography and treated with a minimally invasive internal approach with sodium hypochlorite irrigation and calcium hydroxide dressing. All cases were followed for at least 3 years.
