Abstract

This study describes the management of a case of multiple missing teeth involving premolar autotransplantation, othodontic treatment, and a 6-year follow-up of autotransplantation. The prognosis of the transplant was good with a satisfactory crown-root ratio. Autotransplantation is a viable treatment option that eliminates the need for prosthetic therapy or implants for children with missing permanent teeth. (Angle Orthod 2010;80:396-404.)
