Abstract

Intentional re-implantation is the careful removal and re-insertion of an endodontically treated tooth performed with an attempt to preserve the natural dentition and patients' esthetic concerns. Its limited success rate and a possibility to obtain undesirable outcomes such as root resorption and ankylosis of the tooth restrict its clinical use to be attempted only as a last option after routine procedures. A vast array of procedures have been performed till date with inconsistent results due to lack of analogous protocols followed. Regardless of having a controversial background behind its success in periodontally compromised teeth, this procedure raises a hope to avoid unwarranted natural tooth loss. Performing each step with precision governs the success of the treatment. This case report demonstrates two different techniques with an interdisciplinary approach assessed over 1 year each.
