Here is a Autotransplantation case from
16 y/o male. Med Hx: Non-contributory. RCT initiated at
first visit, tooth deemed non-restorable due to subgingival buccal caries.
Ca(OH)2 placed to allow
for some reduction in PA inflammation.
Envelope flap. #4.7 and #4.8 elevated and extracted.
#4.8 placed in Hanks
Balance Salt Solution during manipulation of socket. Extractions done with OS. I
removed all undercuts and reduced the septal bone of the recipient site ~4mm to
allow for #4.8 to be in
I sutured the site of #4.8 and the M & D papilla, then
splinted #4.5, #4.6, and the new #4.7.
Any advice is much appreciated!
