Nesrin SARUHAN,Ümit ERTAŞ,Tahsin TEPECİK
The purpose of this research is to present the five autotransplantation cases with respect to success rates, prognostic factors, complications and different treatment methods. Three patients’ impacted maxillary canines were extracted and autotransplanted – one of them bilaterally. Two patients underwent mandibular third molar autotransplantation to the sockets of decayed and therefore extracted first molar and second molar. Any perioperative or postoperative complication was seen at autotransplanted teeth which were followed up radiologically and clinically. If the prognostic factors are taken into consideration, autotransplantation is a treatment method that has a high success rate
