The autogenous tooth transplantation is a modified treatment replacing a missing tooth when a suitable unerupteded or nonfunctioning tooth is available. It is also a suitable option saving time and cost compared to implants or conventional prosthetics. These cases, which required single tooth extraction due to deep caries or periapical infection, could have good results by transplanting a sound nonfunctional donor tooth to the extraction site. It can be applied in cases like impacted or ectopic positioned teeth, congenitally missing tooth, large endodontic lesions.

Autotransplantation can be considered better than dental implant treatment, because it can save time, provide faster healing, function, and esthetic advantages. Moreover, it also have advantages of maintaining unique sensory system and promoting proper healing of the periodontal environment to sound tissue. Also can be applied to replace missing teeth for young patients where dental implants or fixed prosthesis are contraindicated.

However, several complications, such as root resorption, ankylosis, failure of the autotransplanted tooth, or root fracture during the extraction can occur.

The purpose of this article is to review indications, advantages and criteria of success and to discuss 4 cases of successful autotransplantation for replacing lost teeth.
