1. External resorption on tooth 21DL

The distolingual surface of tooth 21 exhibits a large resorptive defect at the level of the cementoenamel junction. This resorptive defect extends to the depth of the pulp chamber and has undermined the enamel of the distal surface of the crown. The resorption extends approximately 1mm subcrestally, and is irregularly shaped. The pulp chamber appears calcified as well as the midroot region adjacent to the resorptive defect.
