Tooth Transplantation Q & A

What is tooth transplantation?

A tooth transplant is a surgical procedure where a dental expert takes a healthy tooth from your mouth and relocates it to another area.

With this method, you don’t risk an implant not blending in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth since your replacement is a natural tooth.

Am I a candidate for tooth transplantation?

A tooth transplant may be considered if your teeth are:

  • Awkwardly positioned
  • Missing
  • Crowded
  • Damaged from an injury or preexisting condition

 

Your provider might also recommend tooth transplantation if you aren’t a candidate for conventional implants.

Before you can receive a tooth transplant, the team removes any potential infection. Moreover, they check to ensure you have enough bone and gum density. The Smile Design Manhattan experts monitor your unique health concerns and help determine if a tooth transplant is right for you. 

What are the benefits of tooth transplantation?

A tooth transplant can offer several benefits for a wide variety of people. This technique greatly enhances the look of your natural teeth by filling in gaps and spaces caused by missing teeth. A full set of teeth helps you feel confident in your smile.

Additionally, a transplant promotes better chewing and stronger arch support for the jaw. In children, a tooth transplant may improve the development of the mouth and jaw by replacing damaged or missing teeth.

What can I expect during a tooth transplantation procedure?

Your provider first assesses your health with a physical exam. Your Smile Design Manhattan specialist also checks for any signs of active infection and makes it a point to ensure you have a strong oral hygiene regimen at home. 

In some cases, your dentist may opt for presurgery orthodontics to help move the teeth around and create more space in the treatment area. Your specialist safely stores your tooth until they can proceed with the transplant process.

During the procedure, your provider reshapes the insertion site to fit the new tooth before placing the tooth. You’re given a set of instructions following treatment to aid in the recovery process.
