External Cervical Resorption (ECR) is a complex and dynamic pathology that has attracted scientific and clinical interest worldwide. The reason for this is the significant increase of its incidence of appearance. This increase is possibly linked to either the improvement of detection techniques and/or to the etiological factors.

This presentation will provide an overview of the current research on ECR. In particular, the updated predisposing factors associated with this pathology will be presented. In addition, the concept of hypoxia as the driving force of ECR will be discussed. The aim is to illustrate that despite the diversity of potential predisposing factors, the triggering pattern remains the same.

In addition, the characteristics of ECR will be presented via a series of case examples and by utilizing advanced 3D and histological techniques. A short comparison with other resorption types will be shown, as frequently ECR can be misdiagnosed with other pathologies.

Finally, a treatment approach and decision making will be proposed and the early outcome will be discussed.
