Multiple idiopathic cervical root resorption (MICRR) is a rare condition. The etiology is unknown and occurs spontaneously in healthy controls in the absence of local, systemic, or any other plausible cause. The teeth themselves appear clinically normal. The pattern of resorption begins in cementoenamel junction and can progress rapidly over a short time. It is a debilitating condition which often leads to extraction of all the involved teeth. This article describes a case of MICRR over a period of 7 years with emphasis on the history, clinical/histological findings, cone beam computed tomographic examination, therapeutic intervention as well as the final prosthodontic rehabilitation with implants.
