Transplantation of teeth with open and closed apices
After the first transplantations of teeth in the 1950th the advantages of using natural teeth were established. However, the limitation was that the best results were obtained for teeth with a formation of the root between 2/3 to 3/4 of the final root length at the time of surgery. In the literature transplantation of fully developed teeth has been reported, but the success rate was lower than the transplantation of teeth with an open apex. Risk factors like peri-apical inflammation and ankylosis were often described.
Since 2005 autotransplantation of fully developed teeth is a routine procedure performed by the Rotterdam team. Success rates are comparable to transplanted teeth with an open apex with a follow up of 10 years. In this course both procedures will be discussed in detail. The team members will guide you through the indications, surgery, orthodontic phase a restorative phase using different clinical examples. At the end of this course participants should be able to understand indications for both options and they should recognise all the key aspects which matter to make tooth transplantation predictable.
