Abstract


Tooth transplantation is a method of repositioning autogenous teeth in another tooth extraction site to replace missing
teeth, when a suitable donor tooth is available. Autotransplantation has achieved high success rates and is an excellent
option for tooth replacement. The indications for autotransplantation are narrow, careful patient selection coupled with
an appropriate technique can lead to exceptionally well esthetic and functional results. This procedure is advantageous
since the placement of an implant-supported prosthesis or any other form of prosthetic tooth replacement is eliminated.
This case report is an example of a success and failure of tooth autotransplantation.
