Tooth transplantation

Tooth transplantation is a procedure whereby teeth are transplanted from one area of the mouth to another. It is often carried out in younger patients where there may be congenitally missing teeth. Often the tooth transplantation is carried out at the same time as orthodontic treatment and requires careful planning between your Orthodontist and our Specialist Periodontists. Tooth transplantation is considered a successful and predictable procedure and will often eliminate the need for implant placement or complicated restorative treatment at a later time. The members of Sydney Periodontist Centre have training in tooth transplantation techniques and will be happy to discuss if this procedure is of benefit to you.
