Autotransplantation – nothing to do with GM, Ford or Chrysler

Shared case from a post-doctoral endodontic student at Einstein Medical Center – a thing of beauty truly.

18 y/o male. Med Hx:
Non-contributory. Ca(OH)2 placed in #19 (3.6) at
first visit to allow for
healing.

#19 sectioned and extracted. Occlusion of #32 (4.8)reduced prior
to
extraction. #32 placed in Hanks Balance Salt Solution
during
manipulation of socket. Extraction done with OS.

I reduced the septum bone of the recipient site ~4mm to
allow for #32 to
be in hypo-occlusion by 1-2mm.

I sutured the M &
D papilla and then splinted #20 (3.5) and the new #19.
After 4 or 5 tries and
adjustments the fit of the donor tooth in the
socket was pretty good. We
didn’t not use Arestin in this case but
ideally we would’ve loved
to.
