Abstract

Background: Although dental transplantation is an accepted treatment modality, few studies have evaluated the prognosis for autotransplantation of maxillary canines, and changes in clinical periodontal parameters still need to be demonstrated. The objectives of this long-term study were to evaluate the prognosis and changes in clinical attachment level (CAL), probing depth (PD), soft tissue recession (REC), and radiographic bone level changes between years 1 and 5 for autotransplanted maxillary canines.
