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.
DB Orthodontics has developed a range of transplantation stents with The Leeds Dental Institute autologous transplantation team.
Kit includes x3 stents - small, medium and large - plus stainless steel sterilisation cassette including locking arm (not shown).
The set of stents have been produced to:
- Minimise extra-oral time of the donor tooth/teeth.
- Reduce the damage to the periodontal ligament of donor tooth by minimising the number of try in attempts when assessing the donor tooth's fit in the recipient site.
- Provide flexibility to the surgeon by providing a variety of stent sizes, thereby allowing them to choose the most appropriate premolar to transplant.
