What does a dental transplant consist of?
Do you have a broken tooth that can't be fixed with a filling or a denture? Do you have an infected tooth but are afraid of implants? Have you been advised to have a tooth removed and would prefer to keep your teeth?
You've probably never heard of this type of treatment... and that's because there are very few clinics in the world that perform this treatment with more than a 96% success rate.
There is no doubt that the option of replacing a lost tooth with another tooth is the ideal solution, and although it may sound like science fiction, it is not.
An autotransplant consists of using a tooth (usually one of the wisdom teeth) to replace another tooth that needs to be extracted. Most commonly, the wisdom tooth is transplanted into the position of another tooth that has to be extracted due to fracture or infection.
In our clinic we use 3D printers and X-rays like those in hospitals to plan in resin the oral situation of our patient and the teeth to be replaced, with the treatment being carried out as a repetition of what was planned.
