Treating teeth with invasive cervical resorption (ICR) can be challenging, depending on the extent of the defect and its location; the clinician should provide the patient with several treatment options and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment approach. A thorough clinical and radiographic examination should be done before treatment. This case report presents a case with Class III ICR where controlling the bleeding during treatment was achieved using a different approach than what is documented in the literature; the approach was effective in providing a dry field and isolating the root canal space until the root canal treatment was completed and the surgical repair was performed. The described technique can be used when it is not feasible to provide the surgical and nonsurgical treatment at the same appointment without compromising the treatment objectives.
