Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 22-year old healthy white male having a resorptive defect on the distocervical aspect of tooth 11. Three years previously his maxillary right central incisor had been exarticulated and replanted. After replantation the tooth was splinted and the root canal therapy was completed later. A surgical procedure was performed on the patient using glass ionomer cement. It is stated that glass ionomer provides several beneficial physical and chemical properties.
