    There are six distinct types of resorption of dental hard tissue that occur in association with unerupted and impacted permanent teeth. These pathologic entities differ markedly from one another in terms of their aetiology, their treatment and their prognosis. In several of them, the continued existence of the affected tooth may be in danger while in others, conservative treatment may halt the resorption process and provide for a successful outcome. The treatment approach is specific for each type and is entirely dependant on the diagnosis. This presentation will discuss prevalence, aetiology, presenting symptoms and clinical signs, radiographic features, histopathology, differential diagnosis, treatment and prognosis in relation to each of the conditions.
