“Tooth autotransplantation can help solve dilemmas in our growing patients"
We often encounter treatment planning dilemmas for growing patients presenting with complex impacted, congenitally missing, and traumatized teeth.  Traditional methods of tooth replacement are usually not applicable at this young age. Treatment options usually include extraction, space closure or space appropriation for a future dental implant.  Tooth autotransplantation can provide additional options for these patients aimed at tooth preservation and ridge management.
Topics: Tooth Autotransplantation


Learning Objectives: 

  1. Surgical considerations for an optimal outcome.
  2. Orthodontic movement of the transplanted tooth.
  3. Restoration of a transplanted premolar to mimic a central incisor.
