The article presents information about the intentional replantation technique. It is the willful extraction of a tooth to facilitate the completion of endodontic treatment outside the mouth. In the technique, after giving sufficient anesthesia, the attached gingiva and papillae are relieved with a periosteal elevator. A straight elevator is used to loosen the tooth and it is extracted with the forceps. During the extraction, care is taken to avoid bringing the forceps into contact with the root surface and thereby causing damage to the periodontal ligament (PDL) and cementum.

    Different types of storage media have been studied for use in the replantation of exarticulated teeth. It was found that human periodontal ligament cells survived well in milk. Fifty percent of the cells were viable after 12 hours' storage in milk, while no cells were viable after three hours'...

    Tissue changes in the interradicular periodontium of multirooted teeth as correlated with age were studied in 58 male rats. Cementum thickness in the interradicular region increased considerably, as did the periodontal membrane, with advance in age. Alveolar process height decreased. This study...

    After the periodontium of the rat was wounded, the formation of acellular extrinsic fiber cementum (AEFC) did not appear to be restricted to the hard dental tissues (pre-existing cementum, dentin, and enamel). Layers resembling AEFC were also deposited along the inner wall of the alveolar bone....

    A definition of the term "reattachment" is presented. In dentistry, it refers to the recementing of a dental crown, or re-embedding of a periodontal ligament fibers into the cementum of a tooth. "Reattachment" also refers to the rejoining of a body part, which has been separated in an accident.
