Dr. Gregori Kurtzman answered

Root absent: when the root is not observable on the xray its due to resorption of the root which occurs due to the body dissolving the root structure which is believed to be related to the a foreign body reaction where the body thinks the root is an insult and using the immune response to remove it.
