The article discusses the etiologic factors for external root resorption. This condition is defined as a resorption initiated in the external or lateral surface of a tooth. Some etiologic factors for external resorption are periapical inflammation, acute trauma, and tumors and cysts. The presence of this condition is indicative of irritation of the area caused by chronically inflamed or necrotic pulp. Acute trauma associated with external root resorption range from slight blow to the crown of the tooth to full evulsion of the tooth.
