Invasive cervical resorption (ICR) is an aggressive form of tooth resorption that is not well understood. Accurate diagnosis and early management are prerequisites for long-term retention of the tooth. Treatment procedure includes eliminating the resorptive tissue followed by restoring the defect with a suitable biocompatible material. This case report is on successful management of an ICR lesion; inaccessible to the conventional procedure; by root canal treatment and intentional replantation (IR) of the tooth for complete debridement and sealing of resorptive site with biodentine. At 18-month recall, the tooth was clinically sound with no radiographic evidence of inflammatory or replacement root resorption. Thus, IR should be considered as a viable treatment option.
