External apical root resorption is an undesirable sequela of orthodontic treatment, resulting in loss of tooth structure from the root apex. It has been proposed that systemic factors, such as the inflammatory mediators produced in asthma, may enter the periodontal ligament and act synergistically to enhance root resorption. The aim of this study was to determine if asthmatic patients exhibited a higher incidence or severity of external apical root resorption compared with healthy (no medical… CONTINUE READING
