Internal root resorption is relatively a rare type of resorption as result of chronic inflammatory process resulting in loss of dental tissues.

The case report demonstrates management of maxillary lateral incisor with internal resorption with conventional nonsurgical endodontic therapy combined with calcium hydroxide medication; irrigation with ultrasonic (Endoactivator) and obturation with MTA based sealer (MTA Filapex) and thermoplasticised gutta-percha (Calamus) with regular follow up for one year.
