Idiopathic osteosclerosis (IO) is described as a localized no expansible radiopacity with unknown etiology. The IO is generally asymptomatic and could appear as round, elliptical or irregular in shape. The internal aspect is usually uniformly radiopaque. IO should be distinguished from condensing osteitis of dental origin, or other alveolar bone related radiopacities such as periapical cemental dysplasia. This condition may cause changes in tooth position or problems during orthodontic treatment. The purpose of the present study is to report a case of tooth resorption caused by ectopic eruption rote caused by IO. This condition represents a rare complication of IO.
