Tooth autotransplantation is the surgical movement of a donor tooth to a recipient site within the same individual. Autotransplantation is essentially a controlled avulsion and replantation, either into an extraction site or a surgically-prepared artificial socket.
Premolar transplantation is a well-recognised technique for managing missing anterior teeth, including teeth lost through trauma or developmentally absent teeth, such as in hypodontia and cleft palate. Other indications include replacement of a failing or a poor-prognosis permanent tooth and surgical repositioning of an impacted or ectopic permanent tooth.
