Subject: [roots] Most severe ECIR I ever saw
17 year old boy, referred because of the pink and greyish discolored
central incisors. The patient noticed the onset of these discolorations
2 months ago. The referring dentist asked me if the teeth could be saved.
I am afraid I cannot do anything for this patient.
It is hard to believe that there were no signs whatsoever indicating that
this massive resorption was going on.........
Pity nothing can be done. Marga, don't you think that even 2 months ago
when they first saw the discoloration the ICIR was allready progressive ?
Or do you think all this damage was done in those 2 months ? This is pure
speculation of course. No history of trauma ? What can be the cause then ?
Any history of trauma? That really is a shame in a kid that young with
very few restorations. Thank god for titanium. - Gary
