- Background/purpose: The aims of this retrospective study were to assess the influence
of preoperative periapical lesions on the healing of intentionally replanted teeth and
compare outcomes of intentional replantation (IR) between maxillary and mandibular molars.
Materials and methods: In this study, we retrospectively analyzed 79 cases in whom the IR
procedure was used. The outcome of treatment was classified clinically and radiographically
as either success or failure.
Results: The overall success rate of the reviewed IR procedures was 68.7%. The success rate of
IR with mandibular molars (78.0%) was significantly higher than that with maxillary molars
(41.2%). There was no significant difference between success rates of IR for teeth with and
without preoperative periapical lesions (66.7% vs. 72.0%, respectively).
Conclusions: Within the limitations of this study, IR of mandibular molars seemed to provide
a higher success rate than that for maxillary molars, regardless of the presence of preoperative
