Abstract

Background & Objectives: To evaluate  success rate of  auto-transplantation of teeth with  immature and mature root apex.

Materials & Methods: Fifteen consecutively auto-transplanted  teeth ( six with immature apex and nine with mature apex ) were followed up for a mean duration of 8.6 months and assessed for post transplant  mobility, root resorption, root growth and pain. The transplanted teeth were assessed clinically and Intraoral periapical radiographs (IOPAR) were  taken every three months.

Results: Overall success rate was 73.3%. Higher success rate was observed for teeth with immature apex as compared to teeth with mature apex.

Conclusion: Auto-transplantation can be used as reliable method for replacement of missing teeth if proper case selection and surgical protocol is followed.
