Management of a tooth with internal resorption

# Which of the following is the BEST method for managing a tooth with internal resorption?
A. Pulpectomy and root canal therapy
B. Extraction
C. Svek pulpotomy
D. Pulpotomy with calcium hydroxide

The correct answer is A. Pulpectomy and root canal therapy.

Internal resorption in a tooth requires complete pulp removal followed by a root canal procedure.

Pulpotomy does not completely remove the pulp,  so the internal resorption will persist and probably progress if the pulp is not completely removed.
