ABSTRACT

Autotransplantation of teeth with complete roots is being increasingly performed for orthodontic treatment or for replacement of unsalvageable teeth, but this procedure has lower survival and success rates than those obtained following transplantation of teeth with incomplete root formation. While previous autotransplantation procedures used only models of the donor tooth and recipient site, surgical guide templates created using 3D-printing technology are now available. They allow shaping of the recipient site in proper direction and to the correct depth, thereby reducing the treatment time and improving the success and survival rates. Herein, we report a case involving autotransplantation of a tooth with complete roots at the site of a congenitally missing permanent tooth using surgical guide templates generated with 3D-printing technology. The procedure resulted in favorable healing of the transplanted tooth.
