Invasive cervical resorption (ICR) is a common clinical entity. Invasive cervical resorption can be arrested using the “Heithersay approach” (i.e., mechanical debridement, treatment with TCA, and restoration). Prudent case selection and proper execution can lead to the successful treatment and long-term retention of the tooth. The key aspects are the location, size, and accessibility of the lesion and the structural integrity of the tooth. Cone beam computed tomography imaging is an invaluable tool to assess and treat ICR.

Keywords: Cervical resorption, Cone beam computed tomography, Heithersay Approach, Invasice cervial resorption.
