ABSTRACT The replacement of natural teeth that have extreme external apical root resorption, induced by orthodontic treatment, with osseointegrated implants is not justifiable biologically or clinically. These teeth should be preserved and keep their normal functions, as there is no greater mobility, pain or color change. They may undergo usual procedures, such as bleaching, restorations with veneers and other esthetic procedures that may be necessary along life. The pulp of these teeth is normal. If mobility of a tooth with extreme resorption is identified, the cause of mobility should be investigated, as it is not associ...

The American population is getting older and sicker. More Americans are facing life-threatening illness when approaching end of life. Palliative care has grown to meet the complex needs of this population.
