Orthodontic treatment decisions when maxillary central incisors are absent or are of poor prognosis, are discussed. Autotransplantation of mandibular first premolars to the incisor region is suggested as an approach in selected cases. The literature is reviewed, surgical technique described and case selection summarized. Cases are reported where autotransplantation of premolars to the maxillary incisor region has produced good functional and aesthetic results.
