With new dental technologies, root retention can be used in some cases. With this regenerative treatment, healthy roots that remain from missing or broken crowns can be left in the bone and used to place special coverings and attachments. These attachments can then be used to help support and retain dentures, rather than pulling the root to replace it with an implant abutment.  Root retention helps support surrounding bone by shifting chewing forces back to the area, which prevents reabsorption. It is also beneficial to better stabilize, support, and retain the denture. This regenerative therapy is a great option for patients who are looking for a way to retain dentures but are lacking critical alveolar bone. This can also be a more economical choice over implant retained dentures.
