Teeth have been autotransplanted for many years, although with different degrees of success. However with recent advances and several documentations and cases, it has become a viable and successful line of treatment especially in cases of edentulism, cases of trauma resulting in the loss of teeth, pathologies and so on. It is a little-used method that, if used by a multidisciplinary team, might be the best course of action for patients. Autotransplantation has proven to be a useful therapeutic alternative, particularly for adolescents. It offers a biological and affordable alternative to traditional tooth replacement. This article aims to throw light on the history, indications, surgical methods and follow up of these cases and provides a comprehensive review of autotransplantation.
