Context:- Intentional replantation is the intentional removal (extraction) and replantation of the same tooth. This technique can be useful for teeth that cannot be treated with conventional endodontic therapy or surgery.
Aim:- To save the natural tooth with intentional replantation
Material and methods:- A female patient reported of pain with 46. A failed root canal attempt # 46 had been made, with the calcified root canals being assessed radiographically. The tooth was carefully extracted with no intra-operative complications. The root end cavities were prepared with the inverted cone bur and were filled with MTA. The tooth was rinsed in sterile saline and was replanted back into its socket.
Result:- Intentional replantation can be particularly helpful in the lower first and the second molars where the proximity to the mandibular nerve and the thickness of the buccal bone make endodontic surgery difficult.
