Abstract of the congress course:

Complex treatment plans in implant often include situations where the choices of autotransplantation of teeth (ATT) have been overlooked. If recipient sites are jeopardized for placing implants, more time, cost and techniques are required. However, if there is a good candidate as a donor tooth found in the same mouth, transplantation can be the more appropriate option than implant. For example, the case where sinus lifting or ridge augmentation is indicated can be preferable and advantageous for ATT. If patients are younger than twenty, implant is hardly indicated. There are two more families of ATT; intentional replantation and surgical extrusion, in which the wound healing mechanism is almost same. Jeopardized teeth, themselves may be able to be preserved with those techniques. In my presentation, the advantages, wound healing, techniques, indications and prognosis will be discussed. The lecture will be extensively illustrated with many clinical cases of ATT, intentional replantation and surgical extrusion.

Learning objects:

  • Understand Advantages of ATT over implants
  • Learn the wound healing in ATT
  • Learn the techniques of ATT for success
  • Recognize clinical situations suitable for ATT, intentional replantation
  • and surgical extrusion
  • Evaluate the prognosis of ATT
