Abstract
Introduction: Inflammatory external root resorption in the permanent dentition is a dental complication, usually associated with inflammation of bacterial/endodontal origin. This case report describes nonsurgical root canal retreatment of a mandibular molar with inflammatory external root resorption (IERR) and open apex with calcium enriched mixture (CEM) cement.
Case Report: Radiographically, the distal root of a lower right first molar had IERR and an open apex associated with a mixed periapical lesion. One-visit cleaning/shaping and obturation was performed with CEM and gutta-percha/sealer in distal and mesial roots, respectively. The tooth crown was permanently restored one week post operatively. Three years subsequent to treatment, the tooth remained asymptomatic with clinical and radiographic evidence of complete healing.
Conclusion: The biological properties of CEM cement may make it a suitable endodontic biomaterial and treatment option for teeth suffering from inflammatory external root resorption and the associated open apex.

Key Words: Calcium enriched mixture, Canal obturation, CEM cement, Root resorption, One-visit, Open apex.
