Invasive cervical resorption (ICR) is an aggressive and invasive form of external tooth resorption that commences in the cervical region which can be managed using either a nonsurgical, surgical or a combination of nonsurgical and surgical approach. The restoration of resorptive defects having a coronal and radicular extent can be challenging as a single material cannot be used to restore the entire defect. This case presented with Heithersay's Class 3 ICR lesion in tooth #12, which was managed initially using a surgical approach and restoration of ICR defect with a combination of resin modified glass ionomer cement, composite resin and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). However, the patient presented with pulpal symptoms 2 months later which warranted a root canal therapy. An internal approach was then used to debride and remove remnant fibro-osseous tissue. The defect was then repaired with MTA. A 1 year follow-up demonstrated adequate periapical healing and no pathologic changes around the restored resorptive defect.
