When performed under the proper indications, autotransplantation of teeth is a predictable technique that usually results in a good prognosis. This clinical atlas details the various procedures involved in autotransplantation. Readers are introduced to concepts such as wound healing associated with autotransplantation, clinical indications, surgical procedures, and prognoses for various situations, and they can see the outcome of specific cases over extended periods of time. An invaluable resource for oral surgeons, orthodontists, and pedodontists wanting to integrate this procedure into their practice. Includes contributions from Jens O. Andreasen, Yasuhiro Asai, Leif K. Bakland, and Thomas G. Wilson, Jr.

"...The final chapter is on "History and Future Prospects" and discusses the comparison between dental implant treatment and autotransplantation. This text book is of value to all Practitioners particularly those interested in the field of dental implants and the assessment of the possibility of authtransplantation and its likely success or failure should be considered in appropriate cases. I would recomend this short text book and it should serve as one of the definitive pieces of literature in this specific field of endeavour."

Reviewed by Brian Whitley

"...Modern autotransplantation techniques can provide a predictable outcome, with success rates of 70 percent to 95 percent over 5 years. Autotransplantation based upon sound clinical judgment and surgical skill offers an attractive, economic, and sound approach to a number of situations. It offers the patient a viable alternative to a dental implant or fixed prosthesis.
This excellent publication will prove to be a valuable addition to the library of the dental student, general dental practitioner, dental specialist, and researcher alike."

Reviewed by Richard R Welbury in the European Journal of Orthodontics

"...I can highly recommend this book to every generalist and specialist because there are indications for autotransplantation at all ages. Teeth that would otherwise have been extracted or left within the bone can be used to make natural functioning units."
