ABSTRACT PRE-CONGRESS COURSE
AUTOTRANSPLANTATION OF DEPELOPING TEEHT; ORTHODONTIC AND SURGICAL PROTOCOL.
Autotransplantation of teeth with developing roots is an established treatment option for replacing missing teeth in growing individuals. Favorable orthodontic indications, good surgical access and optimal match between the donor tooth and the recipient site are prerequisites for a successful outcome. Due to their morphology and position in the dental arch, premolars with developing roots are often optimal donors with success reported over 90 per cent. The protocol for autotransplantation of developing premolars was established at the University in Oslo more than four decades ago and has been successfully applied in Poland since 2000. In addition to premolars, other types of developing teeth can also be successfully transplanted which will be discussed during the course.
The main objective of the course is to present:
- Orthodontic indications for the treatment with autotransplantation of tooth.
- Pre-surgical orthodontic preparation.
- Outline of the surgical technique in different indications
- Healing of donor tooth after the surgery, follow-up and results of the studies
- Orthodontic treatment after the surgery
- Trans-alveolar autotransplantation of impacted developing teeth
- Potential for bone preservation and regeneration in young patients.
AUTOTRANSPLANTATION OF TEETH: ORTHODONTIC PERSPECTIVE.
Autotransplanation of developing teeth is an attractive option to treat tooth agenesis, traumatically injured maxillary incisors and impacted teeth in growing patients. Transplanted teeth not only provide satisfactory long-term replacements of missing teeth but also can preserve and regenerate alveolar bone. Premolars with developing roots are the most commonly transplanted teeth because of their best healing potential, but also developing third molars and other immature teeth, like supernumeraries, can be successfully transplanted. However, orthodontic treatment planning must include evaluation of patient’s dental and skeletal relations, profile, space conditions and patients’ wishes regarding tooth transplantation and alternative treatments. Individualized approach is mandatory to obtain satisfactory results.
The most common protocols for application of tooth transplantation in orthodontic treatment will be discussed during lecture. The postsurgical monitoring related to normal healing, detection of possible complications and prosthodontic reshaping of premolars transplanted to anterior maxilla will be presented. The importance of a pre-surgical and post-surgical orthodontic treatment will be discussed including the role of an orthodontist in the multidisciplinary team.
