Abstract

The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess the results after a follow-up of 10 years of autotransplantation of canines and third molars without the use of any apparatus for stabilisation. A total of 96 teeth were transplanted and 83 were successful (86%). The technique is easy, reliable, and effective. (C) 2004 The British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
