The surgical transfer of a tooth from one place in the mouth to another within the same person is known as an autogenous tooth transplant. A natural tooth is used to replace a missing tooth instead of a prosthesis or an osseointegrated implant, which is a great alternative for rehabilitation of young patients with growing alveolar bone. Tooth autotransplantation exhibits a number of advantages compared to other treatment options (i.e., dental implants or fixed partial prostheses), such as greater resistance to occlusal loading, maintenance of the periodontal ligament (PDL) and surrounding bone, and potential for better esthetics. Present review of literature aim to discuss autotransplantation of tooth in detail.
