Autotransplantation, Orthodontic treatment


Autotransplantation is an alternative method to replace a missing tooth. This case report describes the orthodontic treatment of a 26-year old Thai female who had occlusal interference between 26, 36. Autotransplantation of the 18 into the 36 socket was performed. No signs of inflammation, root resorption, ankylosis, or mobility were found. The teeth alignment and occlusion were improved. The patient was satisfied with the treatment outcome and could function normally.
