Effective management and appropriate treatment of external root resorption can only be carried out if the true nature and exact location of the lesion are known. This case report presents a nonsurgical endodontic management of trauma induced external root resorptions at two different sites (cervical and apical) in a maxillary lateral incisor using a bioactive dental material (Biodentine). On completion of root canal cleaning and shaping, cervical resorption defect was treated with trichloroacetic acid and granulation tissue was removed through the access cavity. Calcium hydroxide was placed as an intracanal dressing for ten days. After this period orthograde filling of the root canal space along with the resorption defects was performed with Biodentine. Fifteen months follow up review with Cone Beam Computed Tomography showed arrest of root resorption and progressive healing of the defect
