Abstract

Tooth autotransplantation is a viable treatment option for tooth replacement when a suitable donor tooth is available. These case reports described significant vertical bone growth after autotransplantation of a mature third molar. The left mandible third molars (n = 2) were transplanted to the missing tooth in the left mandible. The patient follow-up period was 10 years after transplantation. Clinical examination revealed no mobility of the transplanted tooth. Radiographic examination indicated that bone regeneration occurred around the transplanted tooth. Vertical bone growth was observed in the cervical area of the root surface and the recipient bone. In autotransplantation of mature teeth, long-term follow-up results indicate that vertical bone growth can be expected if viability of the periodontal ligament cells is maintained.
