With proper case selection and technique, autogenic tooth transplantation can be a viable treatment modality. The authors present a number of transplant cases and suggest the procedure be considered as an adjunct in orthodontic treatment planning. A comprehensive review of the literature, combined with the authors' opinions and clinical demonstrations, has culminated in a discussion of indications and contraindications, special considerations, optimal timing, technique, and prognosis. It is thought that appropriate utilization can simplify or eliminate prosthetic requirements, reduce the complexity of many orthodontic treatment plans, and convert into routine certain cases heretofore thought to be inoperable.
