Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the histologic response after replantation of mature, developed teeth without endodontic treatment in monkeys. To serve as experimental controls, the other replanted teeth received endodontic treatment. No significant differences were noted in the rate and quality of periodontal tissues healing between the endodontically and the nonendodontically treated teeth in monkeys sacrificed at 5, 7, and 14 days, and at 1, 2, and 3 months after replantation. However, specimens obtained at 4, 6, 9, and 12 months showed that teeth replanted without endodontics developed periapical complications, whereas endodontically treated teeth did not.
