Intentional Replantation | Renovo Endodontic Studio


Tooth Replantation

This is a great example of how a treatment approach that is not ‘in vogue’ in the implant era can still have a fantastic outcome. Root canal therapy was completed by this patient’s restorative dentist and the mesial root was not able to be negotiated due to moderate curvature. CBCT shows that the canals had been transported and ledged to the buccal and lingual but the patient wished to attempt retreatment. Unfortunately, the ledge/transportation could not be corrected during retreatment. In preparing this patient for a possible implant, intentional replantation was discussed as an alternative if we could remove the tooth atraumatically. As can be seen in the one year recall, this patient is happy to be out of pain and have the infection completely resolved!
