After 4 months we noticed internal resorption in the apical fragments of these teeth.
Some changes that may affect the tooth fragment such as pulp calcification, ankylosis, external and internal resorptions may be found in follow-up examinations (Andreasen & Andreasen 1994, Davidovich et al.
In the present study, three teeth in the ABS group and two teeth in the FC group showed internal resorption at 12 months follow-up.
The internal resorption begins at the junction of the pulp and dentine, and is at the expense of the dentine and so results in widening of the pulp chamber [Skillen, 1941; Browne, 1954; Muhler, 1957; Blackwood, 1958; Wooden and Kuftinee, 1974; Grundy et al., 1984; Brooks, 1988; Seddon et al., 1996; Seow et al., 1999 a and b; Nik and Rahman, 2003].
