Single tooth malposition has been a problem since antiquity, and attempts have been made to correct this for quite a while. Autogenous tooth transplantation, or autotransplantation, is the surgical repositioning of a tooth from one location in the mouth to another in the same individual. Patient selection accompanied with an appropriate technique can lead to phenomenal esthetic and functional results. Here, the donor tooth was extracted, treated endodontically, and transferred to a prepared socket and splinted. On postoperative radiographic examination, the donor tooth showed no pathological changes and had no mobility associated and was well in function and esthetics.
Clinical Relevance To Interdisciplinary Dentistry
Autotransplantation is a viable, conservative, and an economically alternative treatment to implant or extraction to position a malposed tooth/teeth.
