Ceramic grafting material was used to treat a vertical osseous defect associated with a maxillary left lateral incisor tooth. The area was monitored at maintenance appointments. Root resorption was detected radiographically 12 months after grafting. At 18 months, resorption was evident clinically in the presence of moderate inflammation.
