A breakthrough in tooth replacement
Auto-transplantation is the removal of an unrestorable tooth and replacement with another unused tooth.
An example of this situation:
- An adult – one of your molars is unrestorable and requires extraction. We may be able to extract one of your own unused wisdom teeth and immediately place it in the position of the extracted tooth. The replaced tooth is then restored to look and feel natural in the mouth
- A child – a child may suffer a trauma on a front tooth resulting in the need for extraction. We can extract a tooth near the back of the mouth and immediately place it where the front tooth has been extracted. We will then close the space created by the extraction with braces. The replaced tooth is then restored to look and feel natural in the mouth.
